LFL 2017 evaluation

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Sep 4, 2017 Posted in About the Lab

The Lab has been in “start up” mode for a year and officially launched to the WWF network at the 2017 Annual Conference.  You may have heard us say that “we’re building the plane as we fly” - that said it’s important for us to keep checking that it is, at least, flying in the right direction! 
We are extremely grateful to the 60 respondents and interviewees who have taken the time to shape this.  We share an excerpt below - for the full summary report please see here.  
We would love you to contribute anything you notice, or add any further comments on where you want to see the Lab move in the future.

Priority considerations

  • Focus energy on fewer landscapes to produce advanced case studies based on results 
  • Enlisting co-leaders with business, entrepreneurship and finance experience to diversify skills in the team 
  • Financial sustainability for the lab itself so that we can be an example 
  • Clearer more structured process for incubating landscape teams
  • Building an ecosystem of contributors
  • Clarify targeted communications which tell the story of impact

A special thank you to Chelsea Robinson for her beautiful execution and delivery of this evaluation.
