Measuring Social Impact for Policies, Programmes and Projects: Getting It Done
Social impact assessment is a means of creating a dialogue that seeks to help project organisers and funders to secure their intended outcomes... in terms of the (short and longer-term) effects that a particular project or programme has on improving the well-being of the various groups and societies involved. This book uses real-life case studies and worked examples to illustrate best practice in planning and executing a social impact assessment in a variety of project contexts; by Rory Dillon and Tom Burgess.
