Monitoring environmental and cultural change
Many developing land and cultural management organisations (and some older ones too…) have trouble designing and implementing monitoring programs that are simple enough to undertake and informative enough to provide meaningful information. This is usually because programs lack consistency and a well defined means of analysing the data once it is collected.
ESS works with clients to help design, implement and undertake monitoring programs that are within the capacity of the group yet can still identify and communicate environmental or cultural change particularly in response to land management practices. Our systems establish a methodology, monitoring schedule and a set of procedures that field staff can follow, which produces data that can be easily analysed and presented to managers and external stakeholders.
- Development of customised monitoring methodologies within the capacity of the group
- Establishment of a targeted and strategic monitoring program to produce specific and meaningful information
- Systems to store and analyse data
