Our Results Framework
Breaking our theory down into practical steps
We have applied our Theory of Change to help us develop a Results Framework. We use this to identify the types of interventions that will collectively deliver results (or outcomes) that support our 2030 goals.
This approach helps us to gain a better understanding of the correlation between our activities and achievements. It also helps us to measure and report progress over time. As a result, we can plan our interventions more effectively, because we understand why and how our actions lead to specific outcomes.
The example below illustrates how our Results Framework works:
How the Framework helps
Breaking the theory down into a sequence of practical steps helps us to implement it across our programs. We can then assess our progress towards our goals and capture knowledge to continuously improve the program’s performance.
The Framework, combined with insights from our data on reach and adoption and our experience in the field, helps us to understand which interventions work best to farmers and their communities and why. This means that we can apply lessons learned to continuously improve our approach, design relevant programs and interventions, and enhance our long-term impact.
We have introduced new ways of measuring our progress. Now, as well as measuring the reach and adoption of an intervention, we can also measure the positive results they deliver. To do all of this, we have developed a consistent methodology – our Monitoring and Evaluation system.
