The Metrics Cafe:

by D-Lab; MIT Practical Impact Alliance

Funders and grantees don’t always see eye to eye. Impact measurement is often the battleground where these differences play out. Grantees gripe about burdensome and out-of-touch reporting requirements, while funders struggle to make sense of a motley mess of data. In the end, everyone comes away unsatisfied. The heart of the problem? Funders and grantees need different things from impact metrics. Who decides what impact data gets measured? This is a guide to bring funders & grantees to the table.

Best Practices for BoP Door-to-Door Distribution

Posted By Administration, Monday, July 3, 2017
Updated: Monday, July 3, 2017

Best Practices for BoP Door-to-Door Distribution:

by D-Lab; MIT Practical Impact Alliance

As more corporations, NGOs, and social ventures have endeavored to bring life-enhancing products to Base of the Pyramid (BoP) markets over the last decade, three distinct models for last-mile distribution have emerged: last-mile retail, institutional partnerships, and door-to-door (D2D) distribution networks. The choice among these distribution strategies should be informed by careful consideration of product characteristics, market conditions, and organizational capabilities and priorities.

Building upon the collective knowledge of PIA members and field experts, this document captures patterns and best practices in setting up and managing effective and scalable D2D distribution networks. Best Practices for Door-to-Door Distribution is intended to serve as a guide for practitioners who are working on building and/or managing these types of networks.

Inclusive Recycling - Five Building Blocks for Implementing Sustainable Systems in Low & Middle Income Countries

Inclusive Recycling:
Five Building Blocks for Implementing Sustainable Systems in Low & Middle Income Countries

by D-Lab; MIT Practical Impact Alliance

Inclusive recycling initiatives engage all actors in the waste management cycle (waste pickers, multinational companies, municipal governments, NGOs, recycling companies, residents, and others) to create shared value for each stakeholder that leads to broader economic, environmental, and social impact. Unlike in more developed economies, low-income countries tend to lack the infrastructure necessary to provide effective waste removal, recycling, and composting. Civil society and the private sector often fill this gap through targeted interventions.

This document is intended as a practical guide for those working to design and implement inclusive recycling systems around the world.
