2.8 Activities (i)
The activities boxes answer the question: what are you going to do to achieve the project outputs?
There are no hard and fast rules for identifying activities. For example, look at Outputs 1 and 3: how might you go about answering this question in each case?
Both these outputs are about capacity building, since having a management plan and a business plan will clearly increase the community's capacity to manage the forest.
But Output 3 refers to a tangible product: the plan and its approval by the Forestry Commission.
Output 1 focuses more on the capacity building process itself and the end point of the process is less clearly defined.
In the case of Output 3, you can decide what you need to do by considering the steps in the process leading to the final version of the plan and approval by the forestry commission. This would provide the basis for formulating the activities.
In the case of Output 1, a more analytical approach is required. For example, by asking questions to determine the capacity building needs in more detail and identify ways of meeting them.
