Workshop Session – Project design tools and importance of good evidence and indicators

On 23rd November we hosted two interactive workshops for Stage 2 applicants for both Round 9 of IWTCF and Round 29 of Darwin Initiative, repeated to cater for time-zones. These two-part sessions aimed to cover the use of project design tools and methods to ensure that applicants logframes were as robust as possible through the inclusion of “SMART” indicators and appropriate means of verification.


Part 1: Project Design Tools slides

Part 2: Indicators and Evidence slides
