Together with their partner, Commonland, Living Lands is motivated to develop and employ a relevant monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) approach. Their aim is to improve the means of measuring the real impact of the work being done on the landscapes. The Baviaanskloof and Langkloof catchments will be the study sites for this first iteration. The current MEL approach which is used by Commonland and Living Lands, aims to measure 4 Returns (social capital, financial capital, natural capital and inspiration) in 3 landscape zones over 20 years. The PhD opportunity will be integrated with Living Lands’ activities on the landscapes and informed by the Living Landscape Approach.
