While the SDG’s provide a global set of goals to measure individual actions against, it does not sufficiently address the means of determining whether a contribution toward the goal has been made. This is particularly true when there is not a clear direct causal relationship between actions and the impact measured.
Because of our complex role in the impact ecosystem, Impact Amplifier has developed the following framework for attributing our impact to what we are able to measure. We have created three categories for our work:
The highlights of our Direct – Significant measured outcomes and impact from 2019 includes:
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are defined in a list of 169 SDG Targets. Progress towards these Targets is agreed to be tracked by 232 unique Indicators. Here is the full list of definitions.
Impact Amplifier annually makes contributions toward fulfilling the SDGs. The table reflects our 2019 contributions and what percentage of our overall impact was attributed to each goal. Often a single accomplishment like educating low income, rural girls will contribute toward multiple SDGs – Quality Education, Gender Equity and Reduced Inequalities. Thus, the percentages reflected in the table are more than 100% in total.
