Figure 2. Progress evaluation template.
This template allows a manager to illustrate the degree to which the project is achieving its ecosystem goals over time. (A hypothetical 1-year old reconstruction site on its way to a 4-star condition is illustrated at principle 3.) A practitioner with a high level of familiarity with the goals and achievements of the project can shade the segments for each sub-attribute after formal or informal evaluation. (A blank template for the diagram and its accompanying proforma are available in Appendix 5.)
Notes: Sub-attribute labels can be adjusted or more addeed to better represent a particular ecosystem. The scores must be based on informal or formal monitoring, with indicators designed from the start to provide ecologically meaningful information about the sub-attributes and attributes being finally evaluated.
