Theories of change help aid workers and peacebuilders to make their programs more effective, but they are rarely used to their full potential. Creating a detailed logic of intervention helps to identify gaps in programming, highlight assumptions that need to be tested and provide a sound base for strategic choices that can increase impact. This training focuses on how ‘good’ theories of change can be created to support practitioners gain an in-depth understanding of the change their programs trigger.


Understand the concepts of theories of change and the basics to work with them
Build theories of change on different levels (project, program and organizational level)
with practical exercises
Get insights on different uses of theories of change for design, monitoring and evaluation
Develop ideas on using theories of change as a tool to foster organizational learning and grapple with complexity


The training is designed for peacebuilding, development and humanitarian practitioners and academics interested in bridging theory and concepts with practical knowledge, good practices and lessons learned from field-based use of theories of change.
