Logical Framework: The Essential Tool for NGO Project


The Logical Framework Analysis (LFA) is a tool – or rather an open set of tools – for project design and management. Its purpose is to provide a clear, rational framework for planning the envisioned activities and determining how to measure a project’s success, while taking external factors into account.

The applicability of the LFA is not limited to project design. It can also facilitate project management, interlinking the LFA with the different stages of a project. Its use is now very popular as a project management tool.

More than four decades have passed since the first introduction of the Logical Framework Analysis (LFA) in a development organisation. Today it is being used widely and increasingly. In Bangladesh it is also widely used especially by the NGOs. But yet there is a lack of proper knowledge and skill about the effective use of Logical Framework. The training tends to deliver a clear concept about LFA and its modalities in NGO project.
