LEAF Monitoring and Evaluation programme
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Mission
The LEAF Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) mission is to increase the understanding of the environmental, social, political, organisational and other impacts of LEAF’s activities. The continuous M&E programme augments the scientific basis, benefits, value and the impartiality, transparency and inclusiveness of LEAF’s activities.
The Public System Report on Impacts describes LEAF’s Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system. It is intended to ensure transparency and demonstrate compliance with the ISEAL Impacts Code. Please see more information about LEAF on the LEAF website.
All our reports can be downloaded from the annual reports page
