Guidance Green Economy - Results and Indicators for Development

This guidance for action design has been developed by DEVCO Unit 04 “Evaluation and Results” jointly

with DEVCO Thematic Units.


It is addressed to all colleagues involved in the preparation of action documents and project documents

and offers a handy tool to develop solid logical framework matrices. It identifies clear and measurable

results statements that are in line with DEVCO policy priorities, as well as with the UN Sustainable Development

Goals (SDGs), along with a range of good indicators to monitor progress. It will be updated

regularly to reflect evolving priorities.

Its main objective is to enhance the quality of DEVCO interventions – both in terms of design as well

as of monitoring and reporting in the course of implementation.

The need for this type of guidance was identified in the framework of the results-reporting process

led by DEVCO 04, as well as through its systematic review of all action documents presented to Quality

Review Group meetings.

The present guidance covers DEVCO strategies in various sectors, and presents for each sector:

1. EU policy priorities: a short narrative explaining EU policy priorities and

commitments as articulated in key policy and strategic documents.

2. Results Chain: a diagram showing the main results (impact, outcomes,

outputs) that EU development interventions are expected to achieve in the

sector, reflecting EU policy priorities and commitments.

3. List of Sector Indicators: examples of measurable indicators associated

to each result statement are provided, that may be used in Logframe Matrices

at project/ programme level.
