AREAP Case Study 5: Capturing results that are off the logframe

Partners on the Africa Regional Empowerment and Accountability Programme (AREAP) all use a logical framework approach ('logframe') to develop and monitor their projects and programmes. While this is helpful in testing the logic of an intervention and identifying key inputs and outputs, the situations projects face in reality are far more complex. This study examines examples of anecdotal evidence and unexpected events in the programmes of AREAP partners. AREAP is a four-year project funded by DFID. Its Learning Hub is guided by IPE Triple Line and aims to identify lessons and facilitate sharing of experiences among partners.

Evaluation of the TechnoServe East Africa Coffee Initiative

Triple Line was contracted by TechnoServe (TNS) to quantify the long term impact of Phase One of
the East Africa Coffee Initiative (2008-11) which was conducted in Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and
Ethiopia with the objective of enabling smallholder farmers to improve their productivity and increase
their household incomes. The overall conclusion of the evaluation is that four years after the
completion of the programme, evidence of the gains in yield from the agronomy programme and the
gains in price from the wet mill and coffee service provider model reported at the endline in 2012
have been maintained during the last four years.
