Landscape Mapping for Impact Measurement and Management in South Africa

Who is measuring social impact, why and how are they doing it?

These questions and more are explored in a recent study conducted by Impact Amplifier and Genesis Analytics. With support from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development and the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs South Africa chapter, we reviewed the impact measurement and management landscape in South Africa. We spoke to investors, intermediaries and investees about their impact practices, exploring:

  •  Why and how organisations are measuring their impact;
  •  The benefits and challenges of impact measurement;
  • How impact data is used and reported; and;
  •  The future of impact measurement and management in South Africa.

This study produced, an infographic that provides a visual representation of the data collected and the full report, which provides a more detailed analysis of the findings.
Both of these are available on our report page.
