Our Insights Specialist, Hope Obamwonyi, reflects on her learnings from rolling out our Impact Framework for our new project in Malawi.
Our Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) project kicked off in Malawi recently. PES projects typically involve compensating individuals or communities for preserving and managing ecosystems to ensure the continued provision of valuable services, such as biodiversity conservation. In Malawi, we listened to tea farmers and adapted the PES model. Our project goes beyond environmental and economic outcomes, and also tackles gender equality issues.
The PES project launch offered us the perfect chance to operationalise our new Impact Framework. Our goal is to collate the results and impact of our project in Malawi and integrate these into our overarching Global Impact Framework, which we launched earlier this year.
