Measuring our impact – CARE’s Global Indicators

With almost 1,000 CARE projects in over 90 countries around the world, there is a lot of information about our work and our impact.
To help streamline our reporting and share information with our donors and the public, CARE has developed 25 Global Indicators to track our progress in key areas of our work.

They draw on CARE’s experience across different sectors – understanding of the kind of programs we do, the kind of tools we use and ways that we can feasibly measure progress.

They were also cross-referenced with the Sustainable Development Goals to make sure that we are measuring what others are measuring. This also helps us to talk about CARE’s contribution to global development efforts.
