The Capacity Development Results Framework

"The Capacity Development Results Framework (CDRF or the Framework) is a powerful new approach to the design, implementation, monitoring, management, and evaluation of development programs." Otoo, S., Agapitova, N., & Behrens, J. (2009).

"Originally conceived to address well-documented problems in the narrow field of capacity development, the Framework can be profitably applied to assess the feasibility and coherence of proposed development projects, to monitor projects during implementation (with a view to taking corrective action), or to assess the results, or even the design, of completed projects." Otoo, S., Agapitova, N., & Behrens, J. (2009).

The annexes of this document are particularly useful including a template for a program logic document in Annex 3 and a list of evaluation models, options and tools in Annex 5.

"The standardized sets of measurable capacity indicators and learning outcomes offered by the CDRF can improve capacity development practice by facilitating:  

  • The identification of indicators of program outcomes at various levels and the benchmarking of those indicators
  • The harmonization of practices used to monitor and evaluate capacity development programs, thus reducing the cost of monitoring and evaluation and permitting comparisons across programs and sectors  
  • Improved understanding of the effectiveness of various capacity development strategies and instruments." Otoo, S., Agapitova, N., & Behrens, J. (2009).
