What is PRISM?

PRISM is a toolkit that aims to support small/medium-sized conservation projects to evaluate the outcomes and impacts of their work.

The toolkit provides practical approaches and methods to help practitioners look at the changes (positive and negative) resulting from the project, in a way that promotes learning and sharing of evidence, while still remaining within the capacity and resource limits of the project team.

What does the toolkit contain?

The toolkit provides a basic overview of the theory behind evaluation relevant to small/medium-sized conservation projects before guiding users through a simple, step by step process for evaluating project outcomes and impacts.

There are five modules with practical, easy to use methods and supplementary guidance factsheets for collecting, analysing and interpreting evaluation data.

How can users access the toolkit?

The toolkit is available as a free download from
