Tools for Theory of Change Analysis of Environmental Programs

Theory of Change Analysis (ToC analysis) is a key instrument for verification of a project logic and assessment of project results. It is a crucial element of evaluation required by multilateral agencies and international organizations, for instance, UNEP, UNDP, and WWF The trainers use a Miradi Conservation Planning software ( to teach the skill of making a ToC analysis by explaining such tools as a Conceptual Model, Results Chains, and Process Tracing

Eval11 Session 361: A Logic Model Framework for Programs with Systems Change Intents

These include: a) The Route to Success framework (PADDC, 2009) for effecting systems change that includes improving the knowledge base, selecting social strategies, engaging stakeholders, supporting policy entrepreneurs, and using unexpected events (or “tipping points”); b) a model for change (Newman & Lobosco, 2008) that identifies four domains of successful systems change–policies and procedures, infrastructure, design and delivery of services, and expectation of outcomes and experiences; and c) Scheirer’s (2010) delineation of four dimensions of sustainability (individual, organization, community and population) that emphasizes concepts or programmatic philosophy rather than funding. These strands, when braided together, form a logic model framework useful for education and human services programs with systems change intents
