Proposed Harmonized Terminology

Development Intervention

An instrument for partner (donor and non-donor) support aimed to promote development.



Development Intervention

Ditto plus: A development intervention usually refers to a country programme (CP), programme/thematic component within a CP or a project.


Results

The output, outcome or impact (intended or unintended, positive and/or negative) of a development intervention.




Results

Results are changes in a state or condition which derive from a cause-and- effect relationship. There are three types of such changes (intended or unintended, positive and/or negative) which can be set in motion by a development intervention – its output, outcome and impact.




Goal
The higher-order objective to which a development intervention is intended to contribute.


Goal
Ditto.

Impact

Positive and negative, primary and secondary long-term effects produced by a development intervention, directly or indirectly, intended or unintended.



Impact

Positive and negative long-term effects on identifiable population groups produced by a development intervention, directly or indirectly, intended or unintended. These effects can be economic, socio-cultural, institutional, environmental, technological or of other types.



Outcome

The likely or achieved short-term and medium-term effects of an intervention’s outputs.



Outcome

The intended or achieved short-term and medium-term effects of an intervention’s outputs, usually requiring the collective effort of partners. Outcomes represent changes in development conditions which occur between the completion of outputs and the achievement of impact.



Outputs

The products, capital goods and services which result from a development intervention; may also include changes resulting from the intervention which are relevant to the achievement of outcomes.


Outputs

The products and services which result from the completion of activities within a development intervention.



Inputs

The financial, human and material resources used for the development intervention.


Inputs

The financial, human, material, technological and information resources used for the development intervention.


Activity

Actions taken or work performed through which inputs, such as funds, technical assistance and other types of resources are mobilised to produce specific outputs.


Activity

Ditto.

Performance

The degree to which a development intervention or a development partner operates according to specific criteria/standard/guidelines or achieves results in accordance with stated goals and plans.



Performance

The degree to which a development intervention or a development partner operates according to specific criteria/standard/guidelines or achieves results in accordance with stated plans.



Performance indicator

A variable that allows the verification of changes in the development intervention or shows results relative to what was planned.



Performance indicator

A quantitative or qualitative variable that allows the verification of changes produced by a development intervention relative to what was planned.



Benchmark

Reference point or standard against which performance or achievements can be assessed.

Note: A benchmark refers to the performance that has been achieved in the recent past by other comparable organizations, or what can be reasonably inferred to have been achieved in the circumstances.


Benchmark
Reference point or standard against which progress or achievements can be assessed. A benchmark refers to the performance that has been achieved in the recent past by other comparable organizations, or what can be reasonably inferred to have been achieved in similar circumstances.

Performance measurement

A system for assessing performance of development interventions against stated goals.




Performance measurement

A system for assessing the performance of development interventions, partnerships or policy reforms relative to what was planned, in terms of the achievement of outputs and outcomes. Performance measurement relies upon the collection, analysis, interpretation and reporting of data for performance indicators.



Performance monitoring

A continuous process of collecting and analysing data to compare how well a project, programme or policy is being implemented against expected results.



Performance monitoring

A continuous process of collecting and analysing data for performance indicators, to compare how well a development intervention, partnership or policy reform is being implemented against expected results (achievement of outputs and progress towards outcomes).



Outcome Evaluation

None provided.



Outcome Evaluation

An in-depth examination of a related set of programmes, projects and strategies intended to achieve a specific outcome, to gauge the extent of success in achieving the outcome; assess the underlying reasons for achievement or non-achievement; validate the contributions of a specific organization to the outcome; and identify key lessons learned and recommendations to improve performance.

Results Chain

The causal sequence for a development intervention that stipulates the necessary sequence to achieve desired objectives – beginning with inputs, moving through activities and outputs, and culminating in outcomes, impacts and feedback. In some agencies, reach is part of the results chain.



Results Chain

Ditto plus: It is based on a theory of change, including underlying assumptions.



Results Framework

The programme logic that explains how the development objective is to be achieved, including causal relationships and underlying assumptions.




Results Framework
The logic that explains how results are to be achieved, including causal relationships and underlying assumptions. The results framework is the application of the logframe approach at a more strategic level, across an entire organisation, for a country programme, a programme component within a country programme, or even a project.

Logical Framework (Logframe)

Management tool used to improve the design of interventions, most often at the project level. It involves identifying strategic elements (inputs, outputs, outcomes and impact) and their causal relationships, indicators, and the assumptions and risks that may influence success and failure. It thus facilitates planning, execution and evaluation of a development intervention.



Logical Framework (Logframe)

Ditto.

Results Based Management (RBM)



A management strategy focusing on performance and achievement of outputs, outcomes and impacts.


Results Based Management (RBM)
A management strategy by which an organization ensures that its processes, products and services contribute to the achievement of desired results (outputs, outcomes and impacts). RBM rests on clearly defined accountability for results, and requires monitoring and self-assessment of progress towards results, and reporting on performance.
