Without an understanding of the social value created by ICT investments, it is difficult to make an informed decision about which investment is the most appropriate. The ICT sector is known for having social, economic, and environmental impacts that are difficult to capture. Valuing Impact methods can provide:
•Evidence for policymaking, programme design, and investment.
•Information to decide between competing priorities.
•An assessment of best value for money.
•A comparison of alternative complex investment options using common metrics.
•Evidence of success to help leverage funding for investments.
