Developing a project key components
Developing a project – key components

  • Overall objective

  • Specific objectives

  • Expected results of the activities (outputs, outcomes and impact)

  • Activities to be done

  • Target group/beneficiaries

  • Partners

  • Cross border effect

  • Timeline

  • Budget

Presenting a logical framework in the concept note
Presenting a logicalframework in the concept note

  • You do not need to present a logframe in your concept note

  • However, it is very useful to make one !

  • Perfect tool to structure your proposal

  • Try to develop one with all your partners, already now!

  • You definitely need one for your full proposal

Overall objective s
Overall objective(s)

  • Broader objective to which the project will contribute

  • To be achieved mostly some time AFTER the end of the project

  • The project will contribute to a future impact

  • Project has an impact for project stakeholders

S pecific objectives
Specific objectives

  • Need to be achieved by the end of the project

  • These are directly related to the problems or needs

  • In achieving the specific objectives, you will ensure achievement of the overall objectives

Expected results
Expected results

  • Outcomes, consequences, or what ensues from an action or policy.

  • Results collectively will lead to the achievement of the specific objectives; which contribute to the overall objectives.

  • They show what should be achieved by the end of the project

  • Results are also the tangible products/services (outputs) delivered as a consequence of implementing a project. Services to be provided by the project


  • Specific tasks carried out under the project

  • These activities should lead to the achievement of the results

  • Activities need inputs, both physical and non-physical

  • Activities should be directed to the target group


What are the means required for the activities

  • What personnel/staff resources are needed?

  • What supplies and/or equipment are/is required?

  • Is training required?

  • What about studies, operational facilities, etc.?

Column 2 objectively verifiable indicators
Column 2 - Objectively verifiable indicators

  • Indicators are used for the monitoring and evaluation of the project

  • They show/indicate to what level project objectives and results are achieved

  • Indicators need to measureable (quantifiable) and verifiable

  • Output indicators

    • Products or services that are the outputs from the project activities

  • Specific objective indicators

    • Are linked to the effects of the implementation of the project

    • Give the information related to changes e.g. in behavior, awareness, knowledge and skills of the target group

  • Impact indicators (indicators related to the overall objectives)

    • Related to the consequences of the implementation of the project

    • The wider impact beyond the immediate target group

Column 3 source and means for verification
Column 3 - Source and means for verification

  • Where can you find information about achieved indicators?

  • Possible sources

    • Internal project documentation e.g. reports or specific research

    • External data official statistics or external research

  • These sources will allow the management of the project and the monitors to verify whether the project achieves the planned level of indicators

  • Costs – take these form the project budget

Reviewing your project outline
Reviewing your project outline

  • Is the vertical logic complete and accurate?

  • Are the indicators and sources of verification available and reliable?

  • Are assumptions and preconditions realistic?

  • Are risks acceptable?

  • Is the probability of achieving the objectives relatively high?

  • Are equality issues taken into account ? (gender equality, participation of beneficiaries, management possibilities, etc.)

  • Are the expenses justified by the expected benefits?
