 The basic elements of accountability and impact measurement are the foundation on which The Good Enough Guide was developed.

In this Guide, being ‘good enough’ means choosing a simple solution rather than an elaborate one. ‘Good enough’ does not mean second best: it means acknowledging that, in an emergency response, adopting a quick and simple approach to impact measurement and accountability may be the only practical possibility. When the situation changes, you should aim to review your chosen solution and amend your approach accordingly.
