Results and impact management system (RIMS)

In February 2003, IFAD's Governing Council called upon the Fund to establish a comprehensive system for measuring and reporting on the results and impact of IFAD-supported country programmes.

The Results and Impact Management System (RIMS) provides information on three levels of results:

  • First-level results refer to project activities and outputs
  • Second-level results relate to project outcomes and reflect changes in beneficiaries behaviour, improved performance and sustainability of groups, institutions and infrastructure
  • Third-level results are associated with project impact on child malnutrition and household living standards.

This page contains tools and information to assist project management teams in reporting on RIMS related results.
