Approaches to Assessing Impacts of Forest Governance Interventions

CHALLENGE
Knowing whether an intervention has been successful or not is key to learning from experience and improving the quality of policy reforms. It is also the basis of accountability to the taxpayers and donors who fund such interventions.However, our current ability to measure the impacts of interventions to improve forest governance is quite inadequate. This stems partly from the fact that governance interventions contribute to changes which are not easily identifiable at the household level (in terms of improvements in incomes for example). Rather, successful interventions are diffuse and often manifest themselves in behavior change, deeper stakeholder interactions, improvement  in the  ways forestry institutions fulfill their mandates, etc.

APPROACH
To fill this knowledge gap, PROFOR will support a knowledge product which examines the suitability of widely available impact evaluation techniques to measuring impacts of forest governance interventions.
