Project & Investment Impact Assessment

In order to decide on which project to invest or to request and apply for the appropriate interventions, development aid organizations and private investors in the Third Sector need highly structured cases to show the plausibility of their plans and interventions. The project and investment impact assessment tool aims at the development and implementation of management processes to systemize the monitoring, steering and evaluation of the sponsor/donor contribution towards achieving project`s main objective. Our method brings in four dimensions: economic (purchase power increase and impact on local economy); social (how the project is perceived by the community and project members); ethical (from the perspective of being perceived as fair); and emotional (how community and project members feel about it). These dimensions are checked with benefited groups and includes how the project outcomes get reflected in the context it is embedded, from a network added value perspective.
