Annex provides an example of how to develop and improve the
logframe matrix for an IFAD-supported project by giving a "before
revision" and "after revision" comparison. The "before"
logframe matrix is shown with comments on the problems and how these
could be overcome. The "after" logframe matrix shows the
partial reworking of the original logframe matrix. The example is
based on several IFAD-supported projects and so represents a fictitious
is no such thing as a perfect logframe matrix. The best results
come from considerable discussion among key stakeholders, guided
by facilitators who have a good understanding of the project context
and logframe planning. If the project strategy is put to use by
stakeholders after the discussions, then the logframe matrix is
simply a support and a reminder.
intention of this Annex is to provide ideas and tips about the types
of issues that require attention and discussion when developing
a good logframe matrix. The reworked example is not intended to
be perfect or complete. Different people, including those very experienced
with logframes, will often have different ideas and opinions about
how to structure a project. Therefore, to develop a good logframe
requires several rounds of discussion and revision.
logical framework approach and matrix are discussed in detail in
