Logical Framework Anal" i

Introduction#+ With the recognition that good planning is the basis of good implementation and effective management, various methodologies have been developed to assist with, and improve this process. Donors often require plans to be developed in a particular way and presented in a set format. A specific terminology has also developed which may vary, but in general the principles underpinning the approaches are the same. An effective manager will need to be familiar with some of these terms and approaches, especially if he has to seek funds from donors.

Logical Framework Approach#+ A Logical Framework Approach LFA! is a pro"ect design methodology that provides a systematic structure for identifying, planning and managing pro"ects. #he Logical Framework Approach LFA! is a management tool mainly used in the design, monitoring and evaluation of international development pro"ects. $t is also widely known as %oal &riented 'ro"ect 'lanning %&''! or &b"ectives &riented 'ro"ect 'lanning &&''!. Logical Framework Analysis or the Logical Framework Approach LFA! is an analytical process for structuring and systemati(ing the analysis of a pro"ect or program idea. LFA is a process involving stakeholder analysis, problem analysis, ob"ective setting and strategy selection.

Logical Framework Analysis or the Logical Framework Approach LFA! is the &utcome )apping that introduces some new notions such as focusing on capacity building of partners and defining the behavior changes of partners as key elements for social change. $t can be summari(ed by* +Framework , Language - .epresentation/.

LFA is widely used by bilateral and multilateral donors and organi(ations like A>C$D, %#F, =ida, <&.AD, DF$D, ;<D', >C and the $nter0American Development Gank. $t has also been widely adopted by <%&s, though not without reservations and concerns by some.

Logical !ramework A logical framework provides a means to define or present! a logic as a signature in a higher0order type theory in such a way that provability of a formula in the original logic reduces to a type inhabitation problem in the framework type theory. A logical framework is based on a general treatment of syntaE, rules and proofs. #o describe a logical framework, one must provide the following* 6. A characteri(ation of the class of ob"ect0logics to be representedH ?. An appropriate meta0languageH 9. A characteri(ation of the mechanism by which ob"ect0logics are represented.

-e!inition o! logical !ramework anal" i #+ According to Dr. )okbul Ahmed Ihan0 J#he Logical Framework Approach is a set of inter looking concepts which must be used together in a dynamic fashion to develop a well design, ob"ectively describe and evaluable pro"ectK =o, we can say that, LFA offers a way to clarify pro"ect design and describe and valuable pro"ect. Logical framework approach is engaged from planning to evaluate implementation. Logical framework is a dynamic process, which provides a framework of a pro"ect design in order to make the pro"ect more realistic, valuable efficient and effective to the pro"ect authority.

Figure# + Iey Features of a Logical Framework Approach Importance o! logical !ramework anal" i Logical framework analysis has been used by WWF for over ten years. $t was first developed in the late 67ADs, and has been adopted as a pro"ect planning and management tool by most government aid agencies %AAs!. A good understanding of the principles of LFA is therefore essential when developing pro"ects for donor funding. Gecause logframes are used by a large number of international <%&s and %AAs, they provide a common language when discussing pro"ects. #he logical framework approach provides a set of design tools that, when applied creatively, can be used for planning, designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating pro"ects. Logframes give a structured, logical approach to setting priorities, and determining the intended purpose and results of a pro"ect. ;sed correctly, logframes can provide a sound mechanism for pro"ect development. Logical frameworks also lay the basis for activity scheduling, budgeting, monitoring, and for evaluating the impact, effectiveness, efficiency, and relevance of a pro"ect. =ince logical framework analysis begins with planning sessions with stakeholders and partners, it is about people/s priorities. Furthermore, it allows information to be analy(ed and organi(ed in a structured way, and thus functions as an aid to thinking. 'reparation of the logframe with the participation of all stakeholders can help build a pro"ect where all involved share the same ideas on where the pro"ect is going and why the activities are necessary. #he resulting logframe matriE provides a concise summary of the pro"ect that forms an essential part of the conservation action plan and proposal for funding.

$nterpreting the findings of the analysis and defining how this should be incorporated into activity design 1.2. 0ro,lem anal" i # development activities are usually proposed as a response to addressing development situations and overcoming identified development problems in those situations. #he key propose of this analysis is to try and ensure that +root causes/ are identified and subsequently addressed in the activity design, not "ust the symptoms of the problem s!. 1.3. 1,2ecti3e anal" i # ob"ective analysis should be prepared after the problem has been completed and an initial stakeholder analysis has been undertaken. &nce the negative statement from the problem analysis have been reworded to positive statements, should then check0 Are the statements clear and under bigamous3 Are the links between each statement logical and reasonable3 Will the achievement of one help support the attainment of another that is above it in the hierarchy! $s there a need to add any other positive actions and2 or statements3 )ore detail may be required Are the positive actions at one level sufficient to lead to the result above3 Do the risk to the achieving the ob"ectives and also having sustainable outcomes appear to be manageable3 $s the overall structure simple and clear3 =imply it is possible or necessary.

#he results of the stakeholder/s analysis may be helped to give better focus to priority problems and not all of the original problems statements may be therefore need to be translated into ob"ective statements. 2. (trateg" anal" i #+During the process of analy(ing the problems, stakeholder/s issues and developing a draft ob"ective analysis, views on the

potential merits or difficulties and risk associated with different possible interventions should have been developed and discussed. #o assess alternative interventions in a working shop setting. $t is useful to identify and agree on a number of assessment criteria against which alternative interventions can be ranked or scored criteria that may be used to help make a broad assessment of different interventions options could include the eEpected.
