We leverage powerful partnerships with relevant expertise to develop a framework for impact measurement. The impact of the FCCF is measured on multiple levels. The FCCF has modeled two key outcome metrics, direct incremental CO2 sequestration and creation of employment. Ecologically, the Fund will keep track of its contributions to the restoration of secondary forests through state-of-the-art technology. For the first time, satellite data for carbon storage and biomass change is made publicly available by the Global Forest Watch initiative. Economically, the fund’s competitiveness will be weighed against alternative uses of land, such as cattle farming and palm oil plantations.
Two expected output levels were developed to keep track of the Fund’s positive impact on a social and environmental level:
We use three key areas in which we can track a number of output indicators in order to quantify our positive impact:
