Logical Framework


A logical framework is a tool to design, manage, monitor and evaluate a program. It is a way of structuring the main elements in a project and highlighting the logical linkages between them by relating program inputs and activities to expected tangible results (outputs) and non-tangible results (outcomes). The logical framework is in the different literature also named “logic model” or in short “logframe".


A logical framework can be used by an organisation to:

  • refine its program strategy by analysing what is the best way to achieve the expected results.
  • determine the resources needed to implement a program.
  • create a tool for program planning, management and monitoring & evaluation.
  • create a communication tool for internal (consensus-building) and external (fundraising) purposes.
