Our reach

How we measure success and learns from experience

We measure the reach and impact of our work to better understand where we are making a difference and, when we are not, what we need to change. We’ve made some of our reflections public through our Openi2i learning series and our Risk, Remittances and Integrity (RRI) infographic.

We continue to record evidence on impact even after projects are completed, as we have learned that impact has a long tail end that extends well beyond a specific project lifespan. For example, with our insurance work we continue to keep track of how regulators and policymakers have gone on to apply the insights rendered, through, for example, changes to guidelines and the frameworks that they use in their product approval processes.
