As international civil society grows, many leading organisations are seeking to find better ways of assessing the effectiveness and impact of their work around the world, both in order to assess how well they are achieving their mission, and to respond to growing external expectations on accountability to donors, beneficiaries, and the wider public in the countries where they operate.

It is proving a major challenge for Boards and senior management teams to find robust and cost effective ways of assessing the results being achieved, both in direct programme work, and in advocating for public policy changes. Many different approaches are being tried, and what works best varies widely between different international civil society organisations.

Our team of associates have wide experience of working with international civil society organisations to explore alternative ways of assessing programme effectiveness, drawing on lessons learned from others in the sector and in other related sectors.

If you would like to discuss how Baobab associates may be able to help you with these issues, please contact us for an initial discussion.
