How are the expectations of those who lives are impacted shaping this project?
Workshops with a wide variety of customers and beneficiaries are being held across all continents. These workshops are being facilitated by local partners who have been particularly thoughtful about the voices of customers and beneficiaries, the importance of their role in governance and the power dynamics guiding efforts of this kind. Findings from these workshops will all be made publicly available.
Why a convention? Is this a standard? A framework? A measurement approach?
There are already many great frameworks, standards and measurement approaches in use – by a wide variety of industries and disciplines. This project is not developing another speciﬁc framework, nor a standard that would require everyone to adhere to every element, nor a single or standardized measurement approach.
A convention is “a general agreement about basic principles or procedures”. This convention will describe consensus on principles and procedures for sharing our impact expectations with each other, which can act as a foundation for positioning and linking to different frameworks, standards and measurement approaches.
The convention will recognize that different perspectives will place more or less emphasis on different procedures and therefore position frameworks, standards and measurement approaches accordingly.
