Measuring Impact, Monitoring Effectiveness

Ensuring the positive impact of our work requires a science-driven and adaptive approach to conservation and community development. Our Monitoring and Evaluation team is designed to help us receive and process programmatic data quickly and efficiently. The efforts of our team and partners are strengthened by access to this timely and detailed information, enabling us to continually evolve our programs for maximum impact. This data-driven approach also enables us to tell our story more effectively and share our impact with supporters.

Mobile Technologies Improve Performance

As we expand our programs throughout northern Tanzania, the ability to access data from remote locations quickly, accurately, and reliably is critical. Mobile technologies improve our efficiency. Our field teams use platforms like Cybertracker and SMART as well as an Open Data Kit (ODK) system to collect and share real-time data via a smartphone to a central server. Our Monitoring and Evaluation Unit then cleans and analyzes the data, allowing us to quickly determine information such as lion-conflict hotspots and direct our conflict officers to areas where tensions are highest.
