Module 2 Logframe and participatory project planning


You will be familiar with the structure and characteristics of a well-formulated Logframe in compliance with the requirements of EuropeAid. You will learn about widely used instruments for problem and stakeholder analysis. You will be able to apply participative planning methods, thus acquiring knowledge that helps you to establish a coherent project intervention logic. You will know how to formulate adequate indicators with their respective sources of verification and to identify assumptions and risks.



After a short introductory input, you will work in small groups to apply the instruments for analysis on the basis of a concrete problem statement. You will then share results with the other groups and you will have the opportunity to clarify questions and discuss problems encountered. On the basis of a successful sample Logframe, you will also work on the structure of the Logframe matrix step by step. During working group sessions, practical experiences in formulating the elements of the Logframe will help you to strengthen the learning experience.
