The logical framework (logframe) is a tool used to help organisations in the design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of their projects and programmes. Although it is constructed during the design phase of the project, the logframe is a living document, which should be consulted and modified as needed during the life of the project. The logframe is a dynamic tool that makes it possible to reassess and revise the intervention as necessary. The logical framework methodology allows the project team to think through the major aspects of the project and reflect on the logic of their intervention.
Having a well-developed and clear project design is the first step to being able to elaborate your M&E Plan. However, a Logical Framework is just one of the design tools you can use for your project or program. You can also consider developing a Theory of Change.
Below are some resources to help get you started in developing a Logical Framework for your project or programme.
