Since 2007, the SVA consulting team has worked with over 300 organisations on more than 650 engagements across employment, education, community services, health and Indigenous affairs.
SVA Consulting was engaged to understand, measure and value the social, economic, cultural and environmental changes generated by 5 Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs).
We applied SROI methodology to five IPAs and:
The evaluation provided PM&C with a rich understanding of the outcomes generated by the IPAs and associated ranger programs. It showed the social, economic, cultural and environmental value of those outcomes and their alignment with PM&C’s strategic policy priorities. It also gave PM&C a roadmap for future policy innovation for Indigenous land management. Read this SVA Quarterly article for more.
