Duration: approx 4-5 days: 2-3 days on site plus travel time to and from field
Tasks: meet the project leaders, visit the planting areas and nursery (if applicable), monitor general conditions and community involvement.
Reviewers get an overview of the project and the field review documents. These documents contain, among others, some specific information for each project like: number of species planted, type of project, planting method, etc. Reviewers need to clearly understand the project approach as well as the data indicators before visiting the project site.
Plant-for-the-Planet's Restoration Project Evaluator supports and accompanies the entire process of planning and logistic.
On the field site
The reviewer will travel to the project site, meet the project leaders and explain the review objectives. After this, the reviewing process starts.
During the visit, the reviewer will talk with the project leaders to understand the biological and social aspects of the project, visit planting areas and carry out the field verification: take pictures, note species, check the area, and fill the field review sheets.
The reviewer finalizes the report within one week after return and sends it to the Restoration Project Evaluator at Plant-for-the-Planet. In case there are any doubts, the coordinator might contact the reviewer for clarification.
The reviewer's report is then submitted to our Project Review Board which decides which projects pass the standards, based on the report
