Feed the Future
This project is part of the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative.


The Logical Framework (Rosenberg & Posner, 1979) was developed for USAID as a tool to help conceptualize a project and analyze the assumptions behind it. The Logical Framework has proven extremely valuable for project design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.  It helps you define, design and budget for the interventions necessary to achieve the Country Development Cooperation Strategy goal.  The LogFrame validates and potentially updates the Results Framework and provides a way to define, design, and budget for the interventions necessary to achieve the CDCS goal.

This course will introduce you to the uses, advantages, and limitations of LogFrame, acquaint you to the results hierarchy, discuss how to write good results statements, identify data sources for monitoring and evaluation, and show you how to write specific and measurable assumptions.
