Development Programmes in Logical Framework
Goals and Objectives
The issues identified point to areas where goals and objectives have to be defined. The goals and objectives are to guide the plan formulation and help to identify programmes to be introduced to intervene in their particular situations. The goals defined in the reports are directed at major development priority issues identified. They set the framework for the directions to be followed in programming. The goals are not very specific because of their broad nature. However, if they are broken down into objectives, they become specific and quantifiable.
The goals and objectives are presented in a framework, which contain the following;
- Overall Goal
- Output Activities
The goals and objectives are analyzed according to the following:
• Objectively verifiable indicators
• Means of verification and
• Important assumptions
This broad framework prepares the ground for further analysis in the Programme of Action in the next chapter.
Monitoring and Evaluation
Monitoring and evaluation of the project and programme activities of the 3 Year Development Plan would be undertaken basically by the Municipal planning Co-ordinating Unit (MPCU). Monitoring and Evaluation Reports of Projects and Programmes will be completed according to the formats provided by the National Development Planning Commission; summaries of these will be made for the Executive Committee of the Municipal Assembly, while copies of the reports will be forwarded to the Regional Coordinating Council through the Regional Planning Coordinating Unit.
Project monitoring formally starts when the actual implementation of a project begins. However, a monitoring plan (specifying who is responsible for monitoring, at what intervals the monitoring should take place, and precisely what will be monitored) will be prepared in advance. Bar charts, graphs etc will be prepared and displayed to act as a visual reminder of the monitoring process and to indicate the progress of each project in the course of implementation.
The monitoring plan will also specify who will prepare the monitoring reports and to whom and which offices, they should be circulated. The widest possible circulation to agencies and personnel affected is essential. Public display of progress will also be done. The Monitoring Report will be presented according to the following format:
