This brief illustrates how environmental projects can respond to donors’ demands for evidence of impacts in the early stages of their implementation, before longer-term improvements in natural resource conditions have time to occur. The approach centers on a hierarchical classification of impacts that allows to capture “intermediate” steps, that is shifts in awareness and attitude that
usually precede actual changes in behavior concerning sustainable natural resource management. (author’s Abstract)
