Evaluating Our Results

Third-Party Evaluations

Since 2004, NFWF has commissioned third-party experts to conduct in-depth evaluations of our conservation programs. The external evaluators assess the program’s design, implementation, and/or effectiveness in achieving desired outcomes, and recommend any changes necessary for ensuring future success.

Internal Program Assessments

On a periodic basis, NFWF conducts internal assessments of our conservation programs to gauge interim progress and learn what is working and what is not. We use this information to adaptively manage our programs and inform future decision making. The assessments evaluate the initiative’s implementation progress, conservation progress, and long-term sustainability of progress made. The assessments also highlight broader impacts of our work and describe lessons learned.
