An Impact Assessment project was undertaken for a leading wind power company under Natural, Social, Human and Economic Capitals to assess the impact of the following projects:
In order to get specific and detailed information from the community located in different villages and hamlets, participatory tools like transect walk, resource mapping, institution mapping, chapati diagram, focused group discussions (FGDs) and in-depth interviews were used.
Views and opinions from other stakeholders – Panchayati Raj Institutions, local government agencies (animal husbandry dept., PHED, district hospital, etc.), employees, partner NGO –were also taken to measure the real outcomes and impact. the resultant impact and outcomes were presented by developing 35 case studies comprising 20 family-wise case studies (reporting interventions benefiting a single family) and 15 village-wise/hamlet-wise case studies (reporting interventions benefiting the community).
