Permaculture Impact is a place for community-based permaculture and agroecological projects in any country to access free resources and share experiences around Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning.

With Permaculture Impact you can plan how to assess the impact of your project by working through our step-by-step courses, and join the conversation in our community .

INSPIRATION

- Discover how other projects have benefitted from using Permaculture Impact.
- Consider how your project or organisation currently assesses its impact.
- Decide how to start or improve how your organisation evaluates itself and assesses its impact.

COURSES

- Access step-by-step guides (self-study courses), and join live courses to start or improve your MEL/impact, different aspects of impact assessment and evaluation, where you walk through processes and complete activities as you go along which build to form a picture of (or a plan to assess) impact for your project or organisation.
- Dip into our mini-courses. These are short guides to specific aspects of monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment.
- Tell us about other resources we could add .

COMMUNITY​

- Connect with other permaculture projects who are exploring their impact.
- Ask questions, share your experiences, good practice and challenges, and see what other orgs and projects are doing in our community forum, and contribute to the evolution of Permaculture Impact .
- Help us to create an evidence base of the value of permaculture for funders, researchers and policy makers by sharing your project’s impact work in the Permaculture Impact Projects area.

Permaculture Impact was created to support projects to improve how they assess the impact of their work and improve their own effectiveness, whatever their starting point.

Our vision is that Permaculture Impact opens up a permanent space within the permaculture community to discuss and improve how we collect evidence about the impact of permaculture and how we communicate our impact to the wider world.

 

Collecting evidence about your project’s performance and impact can enable you to:

– Reflect upon and improve what you do
– Access funding
– Contribute to a collective evidence base on the impact of permaculture, for use by researchers, funders and policy makers.

Permaculture Impact is for permaculture and agroecological projects and organisations that are working with communities anywhere in the world.
Content has been developed in collaboration with community permaculture projects in Bolivia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi and Nepal.

 
The courses and resources are offered free of charge, and are suitable for projects that are just starting out, as well as those that are already up and running.

The website is currently only available in English, but this will be widened to other languages in the future.
