Logical Framework


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


A logical framework can be used by an organisation to:

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