Plantwise impact is measured by our monitoring and evaluation (M&E) team at a number of different levels: local, national and at programme level. At a local level, we focus more closely on plant clinic operations so that the organisations running the clinics can improve their performance in terms of quality of advice, geographic coverage, farmer satisfaction. At a national level, questions of interest to government policy are more relevant, for example how plant clinics contribute to delivering national objectives of supporting agriculture and managing pests, and the implications, including cost of government ownership of clinics and capacity development. At the programme level, CABI is interested in how the programme itself is performing and in learning lessons that will inform decisions about the interventions.
