2.5 Purpose (ii)
It is better not to formulate the project purpose as an activity. The reason for this is to make clear the difference between what the project will do, which is described in the 'activity' box, and the situation it hopes to achieve, which is described in the 'purpose' box.
To understand this difference, think about the situation one year after the project ends; hopefully the forest will still be being managed sustainably. This makes it clear that the aim of the project is not to manage the forest, but to create a situation where the local community is empowered to continue managing the forest sustainably after the end of the project.
The purpose should describe the end-of-project situation, not an activity to be carried out by the project. This means not starting with a verb ('to do something').
Now have a go at writing the purpose for the project in your saveable logframe.
It is often quite difficult to keep the project purpose concise. One way to do this is to make use of the indicator column, which describes the purpose in more detail. For example, if your purpose includes the word 'sustainable', the indicators will need to provide more information about what this term implies.
