Environmental Incentives has been awarded the five-year USAID Measuring Impact II (MI2) project. The project will be led by Environmental Incentives and implemented with partners Foundations of Success and ICF. MI2 is an initiative of USAID’s Office of Forestry and Biodiversity.

USAID’s Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3) Office of Forestry and Biodiversity provides technical leadership and guidance to increase the effectiveness and impact of biodiversity conservation and integrated programs around the world. Under MI2, Environmental Incentives and its partners will continue to support Agency thought leaders, mission staff, and Washington bureaus to apply evidence-based adaptive management across USAID’s $265 million annual biodiversity portfolio. Key elements of the MI2 approach include strengthening organizational capacity and processes in adaptive management, empowering and supporting staff, and enhancing the use of evidence and learning in biodiversity programming.

“Environmental Incentives is honored to continue our partnership with Foundations of Success and ICF to support USAID’s biodiversity and development programming. MI2 provides an ideal opportunity for the Agency to create sustained institutional change that will improve the development outcomes and impact of biodiversity investments for years to come,” said Liz Lauck, lead for Environmental Incentives’ International Practice and the Chief of Party for MI2.

Environmental Incentives, Foundations of Success, and ICF implemented Measuring Impact (MI), the predecessor to MI2. Our team is delighted to build on MI’s successes by focusing MI2 on organizational change, systems thinking, human-centered design, and performance management.
