Linking the Logframe to M&E

One very popular metrics-led way of proceeding is the OECD evaluation model, the evaluation focuses on five variables:

Relevance: were the operation’s objectives consistent with beneficiaries’ needs?

Effectiveness: were the outputs and outcomes achieved?

Efficiency: were activities implemented on schedule and within budget?

Impact: what changes did the project bring about?

Sustainability: are the benefits likely to be maintained for an extended period after assistance ends?

The link between the logframe and the OECD criteria is illustrated very clearly in the diagram below, drawn from IFRC M & E guide (2011, p. 10).
