Measuring our Impact
When we speak of measuring our impact at ACP, we are referring to providing evidence that our activities are generating real and tangible benefits. Our impact measurement activities feed into our learnings and organizational practices, enhancing our ability to identify the opportunities, constraints, impacts and social risks associated with our policies, project design, implementation and management. In addition, it assists in framing our discussions on how we contribute to Angola meeting its sustainable development goals, which can then be shared with our stakeholders in a concise and focused manner.
Provide an understanding of the challenges facing the community and the situational context or baseline conditions before our interventions.
Inform our investment responses and define the targets, objectives and indicators that we track, monitor and measure.
Provide a guideline for the evaluation of changes that have occurred in the baseline conditions as a result of our investments and how these results are addressing the challenges previously identified.

Unpacking our Impact Model
The Impact Model presented here is to be read from top to bottom:
- Starting at the top, tables one and two summarize the various forms of capital we contribute to developing our investments. These forms of capital are focused on specific investment themes which aim to support national developmental objectives;
- Table three summarizes the standards and guidelines used to inform how we undertake these activities;
- Table four summarizes the desired outputs at fund level and outcomes on portfolio level, these clearly unpack what must be measured. It is envisaged that through measuring these outputs and outcomes, clear linkages with the SDGs being targeted will be established;
- The specific SDGs targeted by ACP are summarized in the last table.
The key objective of the Government of Angola’s (GoA’s) NDP is to improve the well-being and quality of life of Angolan families. This mirrors our sentiment and our Impact Model shows that this is only possible if there is a synergy and alignment of objectives within both the macro- and micro-environments.
