Global Metrics

As part of a wider program of monitoring and evaluation, all of our partners report into a common set of metrics. This data is used to both monitor performance at a local level – and can be aggregated to provide a global picture of results. The metrics cover a number of common areas, including who we are reaching, the outputs we produce and project cost.

Current results for our seven operational hotspots in central Nepal, Ethiopia, northern India, south-eastern Nepal, southern India, Rajasthan and Thailand up to the end of June 2018 are presented below. You can find a PDF of our latest impact results here.
