Social and economic outcomes play a crucial role in sustainable development. Both monetary and time savings can have significant effects on a family’s quality of life and on the sustainability of a product or intervention. A cooking technology that reduces the time required for fire tending or fuel gathering allows women to invest saved time into the family or employment. In some locations reduced time gathering fuel also means reduced risk of gender-based violence while women forage for wood.
With our expertise in monitoring and evaluation and our involvement in sector development, we can assist in measuring these social and economic indicators.
Social indicators that we can measure include:
- Time savings
- Fuel savings
- Monetary savings
- Gender equity and empowerment
