The Good Enough Guide
Emergency Capacity Building Project
A set of basic guidelines on how to be accountable to local people and measure program impact in emergency situations. The "good enough" approach emphasizes simple and practical solutions and encourages the user to choose tools that are safe, quick, and easy to implement. This pocket guide presents some tried and tested methods for putting impact measurement and accountability into practice throughout the life of a project. It is aimed at humanitarian practitioners, project officers, and managers with some experience in the field, and draws on the work of field staff, NGOs, and interagency initiatives, including Sphere, ALNAP, HAP International, and People In Aid.
