Review for Conservation Through Poverty Alleviation International Inc, Lincoln, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After having lived in this region for 10 years, I can attest that this organization provides a novel opportunity for a win-win solution to the conservation and rural development issues that plague this area. With increased funding, there could be an increased capacity to pilot this work in several areas within the region. Community engagement and follow-up are key and they are working on their objectives with local community members so that they have a genuine stake in the work. Below, I was asked to mark how much of an impact this organization has-- I did not give a stellar rating because they haven't had ample time to finish their project. With increased funding and more work, their impact could be tremendous!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I would change one thing in this organization (and I am biased because of my research background), I would use a stronger empirical approach to monitoring and evaluating the success of their program using quantitative study designs. In this way, their successes can be evidence-based and lead to others in this country to adopting similar approaches. Good luck!
