Study on Assessment of Development Effectiveness and Financing Method for BoP Business
A report from Japan's official development assistance agency on facilitating public-private cooperation to support BoP business development. The report assesses IRIS and other impact measurement frameworks against parameters including simplicity, balance, consistency with global trends, transparency and communication. Using this methodology, JICA selects IRIS as the top choice of impact measurement frameworks. Page 64 outlines the applications of IRIS metrics in more detail.
"In selecting the base for the assessment method, IRIS was selected as the reference indicator owing to its balance between social value and business indicators, and its global recognition, while also referencing process-oriented approaches."
