By the end of the course the participants will be able to:
- Describe the importance and challenges of the Logframe approach
- Assess the need of stakeholders for planning projects
- Utilize problem tree to establish problem analysis
- Develop SMART indicators
- Create a logframe with the integration of elements of project design
- Apply vertical and horizontal logic to a log frame matrix
