In 2008, the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development Results Measurement Working Group (DCED RMWG) developed the DCED Standard. The Standard is a framework for good practice in monitoring of donor-funded private sector development (PSD) initiatives, particularly for adaptive management in market systems development. It suggests three common impact indicators, but focuses largely on how results are measured, rather than what is measured.
More recently, in 2016, the RMWG identified 25 commonly used indicators in private sector development programmes and agreed on common definitions of these indicators. In 2018, the RMWG agreed to further this work by developing guidance to highlight common good practice methodologies to measure five of the 25 indicators as prioritised by the RMWG.
The Guidance Notes provide information on how to measure:
1.Change in income
2.Change in amount of investment generated
3.Number of full-time (equivalent) jobs supported and female jobs supported as percentage of total
4.Number of individuals or firms gaining access to a value chain
5.Number of individuals or firms that obtain financial services
