The project measures the impact it creates on wildlife and farmers. Researchers capture all data at regular intervals and analyze it by comparing with the previous data on the same parameters calculated a few months ago. Subsequently, they measure the change against the planned results. Additionally, this data-driven approach helps in assessing the project’s effectiveness and making informed decisions for further improvement.
The project reports are prepared and sent to the contributors. The report covers the following
1) Trees status as on the last visit made.
2) Any mortality in the trees planted.
3) Carbon fixed in MT from the start of the project.
4) Economic impact on the farmers.
5) Ecological impact created.
