Scope Structure and Contents of the Tool

This guide contains 5 modules, which allow users to proceed independently of the tool’s own logic. The modules contain numerous external hyperlinks to access a bank of technical documents of the FAO, World Bank and other additional information sources. They also contain internal hyperlinks for navigating between modules or for easy access to the tool’s glossary.

Contents of the tool

Each module of the M&E-LAP tool has: a conceptual framework, a practical guide to and multiple instruments for evaluation, such as the results frameworks and fact sheets. The tool also contains a general glossary and an extensive bibliography.

Modules 2, 3 and 4 are divided into four parts:

  • The Conceptual Framework offers a theoretical introduction based on a literature review and on the experience of LAPs in Latin America; it offers a range of results and impacts for constructing the results framework.
  • The Results Framework displays the range of results and impacts with their indicators, means of checking and assumptions. These are linked to fact sheets and are downloadable documents.
  • The Practical Methodological Guide offers a practical introduction to the key indicators according to project cycle stages and introduces the fact sheets.
  • Fact sheets are practical instruments for step-by-step measurement of the main LAPs indicators to support the methodological guide. These sheets can also be downloaded on line.
