Impact Evaluation/M&E Plan
Projects must include specific indicators (KPIs) measurable and verifiable allowing to assess their impact on the ground. The foundation developed a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework which will allow tracking its impact at global level (document available soon on the website); each project should include specific indicators aligned with the foundation’s global indicators. At least one indicator must relate to a direct action on species. Representatives of the Foundation may travel to project sites in order to evaluate project implementation and impact.

Application Directions

Proposals must be submitted through the Foundation’s website (www.fondationfranklinia.org).

Projects must be submitted using all 3 template documents available from the Foundation’s website: project proposal, budget and logical framework. Proposals submitted in other format will not be considered.
