Geospatial Analysis for Evaluation

Unlocking the Potential of Geospatial Analysis for Evaluation

Melvin Wong and Ingrid Dallmann presented “Geospatial impact evaluation of the KfW and the AFD conservation portfolio on forest cover loss” in the Symposium organised by the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) of the World Bank, on April 11, 2024. They showcased an innovative approach to monitoring and evaluating land conservation projects in Latin America (KfW) and Africa (AFD).

The use of open-source and remote sensing data, analyzed with the mapme.biodiversity package, demonstrates a robust method for assessing the impact of conservation efforts on forest cover.

This was a great opportunity to show an example of collaboration between the KfW and the AFD in the frame of the Geo4Impact program, and to meet other experts on geospatial evaluation of development projects. Recordings of the various presentations are available in the link above.
