Monitoring, Reporting and Verification

Efeca offer in-depth monitoring and evaluation services, providing useful recommendations and lessons learned to increase the effectiveness of your future activities. We have a wide-ranging experience in market analysis, monitoring, evaluating, reporting, data verification and socio-economic impact assessments for a variety of commodities such as timber, pulp and paper, palm oil, woodfuel and carbon.

Examples of our work at policy and programme level include assessing the impact and monitoring progress of policies such as FLEGT Action Plan on EU and international markets and working with The International Financial Corporation’s (IFC) Program for Eastern Indonesia Small and Medium Enterprise Assistance (PENSA) II evaluation of forest sector investments. At company level, we have worked with Kingfisher to verify their annual progress towards timber purchasing commitments for several years and have assessed evidence for compliance with standards, policies and regulations for many multinational organisations including Unilever and Samsung.

We have monitored and evaluated many global standards and policies, including an assessment of international palm oil standards, and an assessment of timber standards FSC and PEFC for compliance with timber procurement policies of governments and private companies.

We have written and published the UK Annual Consumption Report on Palm Oil for the UK Government each year from 2012, reporting on progress towards 2015 target of 100% sustainable palm oil and mapping sustainable palm oil usage against UK government target of 100% by end of 2015.
