MONITOR, LEARN AND RESPOND
It's essential to monitor our programme's impacts on ecosystem services and food security resilience to assess progress and enable informed decision-making. This includes high-quality data, analytical methods, information-sharing protocols with local communities, and risk-management approaches for evaluating the trade-offs and synergies among policies for food production, nutritional security, poverty alleviation, and ecosystem services.
THE TRACK METHOD
- Development of a framework to guide multi-scale monitoring and assessment of ecosystem services and socio-economic benefits.
- Establishment of quantitative baselines for ecosystem services and gender-disaggregated measures of food security at project, national and regional scales.
- Data generated will be fed into the Science-Policy Interface and inform the scaling-up pathways for integrated approaches – both Value Chains and Rural Advisory Services.
