Training Course on Project Design using Logical Framework Approach

Course Overview

The Logical Framework Approach provides a comprehensive framework for project design by breaking down project objectives into manageable components, defining indicators for measuring success, identifying means of verification, and addressing potential risks and assumptions. Throughout this training, we\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll cover key concepts such as stakeholder analysis, problem analysis, objective setting, strategy formulation, activity planning, indicator development, risk analysis, and the development of the Logical Framework Matrix (LogFrame). By the end of this session, the participant will have a solid understanding of how to apply the Logical Framework Approach to design projects that are focused, measurable, and aligned with desired outcomes.

Course Objectives

By the end of the training, participants will:

  • Understand the principles and importance of the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) in project design.
  • Be able to conduct stakeholder analysis effectively.
  • Master problem analysis techniques to identify project needs and priorities.
  • Develop clear, measurable, and achievable project objectives.
  • Formulate strategies and interventions aligned with project goals.
  • Plan and sequence project activities efficiently.
  • Define relevant indicators to measure project progress and success.
  • Identify and assess project risks and assumptions.
