Guidance Note 3: Theory of Change approach to climate change adaptation programming

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P. (for SEA Change CoP, UKCIP)
Publication date: 2014

This Guidance Note describes the Theory of Change approach and explains why it is a good fit for climate change adaptation programming. It highlights its differences with the more familiar logic model / logical framework (‘logframe’) approaches – and also shows how they can be used together.

It goes on to guide the reader through the steps of a hypothetical ToC exercise, and then comments on how to avoid the disadvantages and pitfalls that can occur when applying this model. It concludes by highlighting a ‘real world’ example of how one agency has used ToC to enhance its work.
