  • Most significant stories complement other M&E efforts in CPWF. We are going through the exercise of finding MSC stories because: MSC stories can help identify change that is happening during a project, even if it is small The stories give a sense of where the project is going and a chance to adjust The process helps clarify, to ourselves and others, what kind of change we value The stories are communications products, which can be used to present our work to stakeholders and partners
  • 1) Relationship with HP developers. 2) Livelihoods surveys? You now know something you didn’t before?3) Viravorn at the WWF meeting AND/OR working HP developers outside of Laos – why is their attitude different in Laos than elsewhere4) 5) Sonali: Getting the researchers together, cooperation between MK1 and MK2
