Next Generation Evaluation in Impact Investing
Colleagues Jane Reisman and Veronica Olazabal have authored a new paper entitled “Situating the Next Generation of Impact Measurement and Evaluation for Impact Investing”, published recently by the Rockefeller Foundation. After providing background on the impact investing industry, the paper surveys a “menu of measurement approaches,” including the IRIS standards, lean data, rigorous outcome and impact evaluation, and a suite of methods aimed at the market systems level. The paper will be of interest to practitioners in impact investing and development and innovative finance, sustainable development, philanthropy and evaluation. Please see report here.
