We help you identify what matters in tracking and communicating your impact, support you in metrics development, and conduct research and evaluations to track progress and leverage long-term social impact, social justice and rights promotion, and positive environmental changes.
We work with donors, corporates or impact investors using a participatory approach to develop, update and/or manage a set of reliable impact metrics and reporting processes to measure social impact and sustainability.
Evaluation of INGKA-IKEA's advocacy on the Road to COP26: In summer 2021, ImpactMapper launched a collaboration with INGKA-IKEA to conduct an assessment of their advocacy, influence, and contributions to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. The evaluation will support strategic learning, decision-making, and storytelling in relation to INGKA-IKEA’s efforts in accelerating the transition to a fair and equal net-zero society.
Impact Report of Malala Fund's COVID-19 response: In 2021, we were excited to support the team in aligning their monitoring and evaluation systems with their COVID-19 grantmaking strategy. Through a participatory process, we worked with the Malala Fund team and analyzed their grantmaking data and grantee report data, created impact indicators and metrics for their funding portfolio, and wrote an Impact Report of Malala Fund's COVID-19 response efforts.
ImpactMapper completed a synthesis evaluation of 57 country UNFPA program reports to take stock of lessons learned around three transformative results: ending maternal mortality, eliminating gender based violence and harmful practices and ensuring access to family planning. The synthesis findings were launched at UNFPA’s 50th anniversary and shed light on UNFPA’s global impact and lessons learned. The full report and the Lessons Learned policymaking brief can be found here.
Stories are a critical form of communication that moves hearts and minds, and they can also be used to track changes in social impact initiatives. We create stories and case studies to profile groups' key achievements visually. We bring together data from different sources to tell visually compelling stories.
Example impact stories and case studies:Pastoral Women's Council, International Women’s Development Agency
Our team engages in synthesis work and meta-evaluations. We have experience in synthesizing insights across multiple evaluations, research or grantee reports and creating learning products that support diverse stakeholders.
Examples of published meta-syntheses we have conducted include UNFPA's assessment of lessons learned from their last strategic plan 2018-2021.
We value diversity, inclusion, and gender equity (DEI) in organizations and have unique expertise developing gender and intersectional analysis tools and reports for organizations.
Impact Mapper assists you to understand your goals, progress and risks in DEI. In addition to policy, human resources, and accountability areas, we pay special attention to assessing organizational issues of culture and leadership as these are the key areas where inequalities get perpetuated and maintained.
