Private sector is progresibly opened to impact evaluation

What are the possibilities for impact evaluation in the private sector?
We found that there is a big opportunity for training in this field and at least in Latin America, companies and private foundations are willing to keep on learning on how to implement this type of evaluations. What will be your role in this challenge?
Find more about main challenges for impact evaluation in Latin America in a paper we developed together with Frank Vanclay

Dear Biswajit, 

Thanks for reading the article and sharing that the situation is similar in India. Effectively ESG and M&E should be totally allinged! However, I dont see this happening until the moment. It would be great to exchange ideas on this issue. 

I alredy downloaded the document you sent to us! 

Lets keep in touch and have a great week ahead! 

Thanks Rituu for the possibility to meet interesting people in this platform

All the best, Yanina

Dear Yanina,
Your article has been an interesting read, to understand Latin America perspectives. 

In my opinion, the challenges from your findings do resonate similar situations in our country. 
In our country, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, has the issued directives to spend 2% on CSR by the Public/Corporate/Private sector.

Now with the emerging ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) voluntary disclosure - Sustainability reporting, M&E will have its due importance. 

BSE has set a guideline for ESG disclosure. Below is the link for your reference.

Hope this provides some insights from India. Will appreciate to deliberate and exchange views and learn more in the context. 
Thank you Rituu for sharing this article and connecting. Appreciate being a Member. 
Regards,
Biswajit
