Project Approaches
• Advocacy
• Forest Monitoring and Enforcement
• Journalism and Storytelling
• Stakeholder Engagement and Capacity Building
• Informing Land Use Management and/or Policy
Photo: AMPA
Project Approaches
Photo: KUASA
• Advocacy
✓Worked with Indigenous
communities to develop monitoring
brigades, which resulted in the
creation of 6 demarcation maps.
This helped them to advocate for
strengthened land rights and the
creation of an Indigenous Reserve
Project Approaches
Photo: Forests of the World
• Forest Monitoring and
Enforcement
✓Used deforestation alerts found on
GFW along with drone technology to
identify and monitor areas of threat.
Worked with forest authorities to
conduct weekly monitoring
expeditions, which resulted in 21
forestry law enforcement operations
Project Approaches
Photo: Reporter Brasil
• Journalism and Storytelling
✓Used data on GFW to report on
cases of illegal deforestation and
raise awareness for community
land rights including a short
documentary unveiling the real
costs of a major hydroelectric
power plant
Project Approaches
Photo: AMPA
• Stakeholder Engagement and
Capacity Building
✓Sensitized community members in
forest fringing villages of the
negative impacts of unsustainable
forest practices. Following
sensitization, formed and trained
two community networks on data
collection via GFW tools
Project Approaches
Photo: COCOMASUR
• Informing Land Use Management
and/or Policy
✓Used data on GFW to analyze the
direct and indirect impacts of a large-
scale infrastructure project, which
resulted in visualizations of
deforestation scenarios for 2030 and
2050 of the project. Findings were
shared with relevant decision makers
Proposal Tips
• Relevance
• Clearly indicate how your project will support using forest monitoring data on GFW for
improved forest management, enforcement and/or campaigning for one of the key
approaches
• Feasibility
• Articulate how WRI funding will be leveraged to enhance existing projects or ongoing work
related to forest monitoring
• Potential for Impact
• GFW data and tools lead to outcomes, such as a change in policy or recognition of an area’s
legal status, a lawsuit, an investigation, a fine or penalty, or a successful campaign or
boycott.
• Sustainability
• Project outcomes will lead to lasting impact beyond the project’s life cycle

Logical Framework
Activities – specific tasks that need
to be done to produce project’s
outputs
Outcomes – the results you
anticipate from your outputs and
activities
Outcome Indicators – the way a
project measures change as a
result from the activities/outputs,
should be quantitative
Overarching goal/objective – The
main accomplishment of your
project, the change you expect to
see by the time your project ends
Outputs – clear, concrete products
or deliverables that directly link to
desired outcomes
Output Outcome
versus
Alerts, investigations
and reports are used
to inform policy and
create management
best-practices for
each forest area
3 in-depth forest
threat analyses are
produced using data
on GFW to assist
the long-term
management of
each forest area of
the project
✓
GFW and Forest
Watcher trainings are
delivered to forest
fringing communities
6 forest fringing communities
use Forest Watcher to
conduct weekly forest
monitoring patrols and report
illegal activities to authorities.
More illegal activities are
reported to authorities by
forest fringing communities
than before the project.
✓
Outcome Indicators
• Use SMART
• Specific – is the information easily understood? No multiple elements
• Measurable – are changes verifiable? Practical to measure indicator?
• Accurate/Attributable – is it measuring what needs to be monitored? and
how sensitive to change over the life of the project? / Able to monitor
meaningful contribution?
• Relevant/Reliable – information used for decision making? Important
analytical purpose? locally relevant? / can get the data? Credible? Link
between indicators and what you are trying to show is direct?
• Time-bound – collect at regular intervals over a specific period of time,
accounting for lags between Outputs, Outcomes, and Impacts
Overarching Goal/Objective
70% of forest officials in LIA
protected area use deforestation
alerts found on GFW for monitoring
activities
The ability of local observers to
monitor forests using GFW tools is
achieved
• Vague – who are the local
observers, how their ability to use
GFW tools achieved and how is this
measured?
• This is more of an outcome
indicator than an overarching
goal
Long-term monitoring plans are put into place for
S, V, and Y forest reserves. There is a 5%
reduction of deforestation alerts in the areas by
project end
Due to more effective monitoring and enforcement
procedures, 40% of the illegal logging sites in the
protected area become inoperable
✓
• Explains how project outcomes
led to a noticeable, specific,
and noteworthy result for
project area(s) of focus
Impact Tracking
The more you closely monitor the outcomes of your project the more likely you are to be able to
attribute change to your project, which can sometimes be hard to readily see unless you conduct
surveys, track down data and documents, consult national or subnational statistics and indicators

  • 17. Project Approaches • Advocacy • Forest Monitoring and Enforcement • Journalism and Storytelling • Stakeholder Engagement and Capacity Building • Informing Land Use Management and/or Policy Photo: AMPA
  • 18. Project Approaches Photo: KUASA • Advocacy ✓Worked with Indigenous communities to develop monitoring brigades, which resulted in the creation of 6 demarcation maps. This helped them to advocate for strengthened land rights and the creation of an Indigenous Reserve
  • 19. Project Approaches Photo: Forests of the World • Forest Monitoring and Enforcement ✓Used deforestation alerts found on GFW along with drone technology to identify and monitor areas of threat. Worked with forest authorities to conduct weekly monitoring expeditions, which resulted in 21 forestry law enforcement operations
  • 20. Project Approaches Photo: Reporter Brasil • Journalism and Storytelling ✓Used data on GFW to report on cases of illegal deforestation and raise awareness for community land rights including a short documentary unveiling the real costs of a major hydroelectric power plant
  • 21. Project Approaches Photo: AMPA • Stakeholder Engagement and Capacity Building ✓Sensitized community members in forest fringing villages of the negative impacts of unsustainable forest practices. Following sensitization, formed and trained two community networks on data collection via GFW tools
  • 22. Project Approaches Photo: COCOMASUR • Informing Land Use Management and/or Policy ✓Used data on GFW to analyze the direct and indirect impacts of a large- scale infrastructure project, which resulted in visualizations of deforestation scenarios for 2030 and 2050 of the project. Findings were shared with relevant decision makers
  • 23. Proposal Tips • Relevance • Clearly indicate how your project will support using forest monitoring data on GFW for improved forest management, enforcement and/or campaigning for one of the key approaches • Feasibility • Articulate how WRI funding will be leveraged to enhance existing projects or ongoing work related to forest monitoring • Potential for Impact • GFW data and tools lead to outcomes, such as a change in policy or recognition of an area’s legal status, a lawsuit, an investigation, a fine or penalty, or a successful campaign or boycott. • Sustainability • Project outcomes will lead to lasting impact beyond the project’s life cycle Photo: Hen Mpoano
  • 24. Logical Framework Activities – specific tasks that need to be done to produce project’s outputs Outcomes – the results you anticipate from your outputs and activities Outcome Indicators – the way a project measures change as a result from the activities/outputs, should be quantitative Overarching goal/objective – The main accomplishment of your project, the change you expect to see by the time your project ends Outputs – clear, concrete products or deliverables that directly link to desired outcomes
  • 25. Output Outcome versus Alerts, investigations and reports are used to inform policy and create management best-practices for each forest area 3 in-depth forest threat analyses are produced using data on GFW to assist the long-term management of each forest area of the project ✓ GFW and Forest Watcher trainings are delivered to forest fringing communities 6 forest fringing communities use Forest Watcher to conduct weekly forest monitoring patrols and report illegal activities to authorities. More illegal activities are reported to authorities by forest fringing communities than before the project. ✓
  • 26. Outcome Indicators • Use SMART • Specific – is the information easily understood? No multiple elements • Measurable – are changes verifiable? Practical to measure indicator? • Accurate/Attributable – is it measuring what needs to be monitored? and how sensitive to change over the life of the project? / Able to monitor meaningful contribution? • Relevant/Reliable – information used for decision making? Important analytical purpose? locally relevant? / can get the data? Credible? Link between indicators and what you are trying to show is direct? • Time-bound – collect at regular intervals over a specific period of time, accounting for lags between Outputs, Outcomes, and Impacts
  • 27. Overarching Goal/Objective 70% of forest officials in LIA protected area use deforestation alerts found on GFW for monitoring activities The ability of local observers to monitor forests using GFW tools is achieved • Vague – who are the local observers, how their ability to use GFW tools achieved and how is this measured? • This is more of an outcome indicator than an overarching goal Long-term monitoring plans are put into place for S, V, and Y forest reserves. There is a 5% reduction of deforestation alerts in the areas by project end Due to more effective monitoring and enforcement procedures, 40% of the illegal logging sites in the protected area become inoperable ✓ • Explains how project outcomes led to a noticeable, specific, and noteworthy result for project area(s) of focus
  • 28. Impact Tracking The more you closely monitor the outcomes of your project the more likely you are to be able to attribute change to your project, which can sometimes be hard to readily see unless you conduct surveys, track down data and documents, consult national or subnational statistics and indicators
