Impact for SDGs
Implementers of a group training or an institutional collaboration project have identified medium-term and long-term benefits for their project. These can be for a specific target group or for society in general. The benefits of all OKP interventions together should contribute to reaching the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
After the completion of the training or project, partners must report on a set of indicators to measure the benefits and the impact they have on SDGs.
The effects extend beyond the completion of the training or project. Therefore, we need a monitoring system that does not only cover the implementation period but also a period of 1 – 5 years after the end date.
Being able to monitor on impact indicators after the end date allows us to:
- make results visible and show the wider relevance and contributions of the projects and the programme;
- learn how capacity and knowledge building contribute to achieving long-term development goals.
There are many questions among Orange Knowledge Partners about the significance of OKP in achieving the SDGs. During this session we want to share experiences and good practices, so we can make recommendations for measuring impact and improving monitoring after the end of a project or training.
- project coordinators;
- monitoring & evaluation (M & E) experts;
- OKP stakeholders.
You will meet M&E colleagues from partner organisations who also work on post-project impact monitoring. We will reflect on the steps we need to take from the initiation phase of a training/project until the completion. Together we will develop recommendations for impact monitoring that Nuffic will integrate in guidelines for future Orange Knowledge projects.
- online meeting;
- presentation of good practices, group discussion and sharing of experiences and lessons learned.
- M&E specialists of Maastricht School of Management and Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation
