4 Indicators and means of verification

Once the assumptions have been worked through you can then consider the formulation of the indicators.

Figure 12 The indicators and means of verification
Figure 12 The indicators and means of verification

Indicators answer two questions:

  • How do you know the project is successful?
  • How can you show the project is successful?

More formally, indicators describe verifiable changes that can be used to demonstrate the success of the project.

Indicators should be formulated with their respective means of verification, which indicate where and how the information about the indicator can be obtained.

The logframe matrix should include separate indicators for each different level of the matrix, that is, a set of indicators for the wider goal, a set for the purpose and a set for each of the outputs.

However, you don't usually need indicators for the activities. Later you will consider what this box of the matrix can be used for.
