A compendium of education and conflict frameworks
This guide’s purpose is to help understand and use theories of change and to provide resources and information to draw upon in that process. It distills insights from development policy and practice, as well as from the analysis of researchers, to give the most up-to-date material to construct theories of change for development programming. This Briefing Paper covers the following: 1. Defining theories of change and how they are relevant (Section 1.1) 2. Constructing theories of change (Section 1.2) 3. Introducing and explaining how to use the Theories of Change Matrix and Primers in defining programmatic theories of change (Section 2.1) 4. Presenting the Theories of Change Matrix (Section 2.2).
