MEASURING EFFECTIVENESS: KOPERNIK'S M&E INSIGHTS FROM LAST MILE COMMUNITIES IN INDONESIA »

At the beginning of this year, Kopernik introduced a new series of projects called ‘experimentation projects’ as part of our commitment to find what works to reduce poverty in the last mile. The nature of experimentation is characterized by trial and error, an approach of “try, fail, learn, repeat”. However, this leads to a fundamental question; When failure is part of the process, how do we measure our effectiveness?

Adopting R&D principles in the social sector »

In our work at Kopernik, we’re seeing a lot of promise in applying research and development (R&D) approaches - well-established in private sector best practices – to improve our programs and find what really works to reduce poverty. Our lean experimentation methods focus on rapid, small-scale testing of ideas and products to determine their viability prior to investing large amounts of money, effort and time into widespread implementation.

Unusual Suspects for Innovation »

To achieve any of the SDGs in any country, no single player can do it alone. Not even some of the biggest corporations, foundations, and institutions in the world. We need effective synergies between like-minded partners to channel resources for collective impact.

When selling in the last mile, end-user financing is a must »

A KOPERNIK INSIGHT

Kopernik’s Women Entrepreneurs, or Wonder Women as we call them, have sold more than  20,000 clean energy technologies in Eastern Indonesia during the past 3 years. That’s a lot of customers! We interviewed 325 of these customers to learn about their experience with the products and the impact they had on their lives. We also wanted to find out what payment method they used to buy their technology.
