Introduction to theory of change thinking in agriculture development

SLU Global and SIANI Workshop arranged in cooperation with AgriFoSe2030

‘ToC’ is an iterative approach to programme design, planning, monitoring, evaluation, learning and adaptation. It has been used extensively since the 1990s to guide programmes focusing on complex social change.

Workshop focus:
The workshop will give an overview of ToC and how it can be applied within agricultural research and development initiatives to strengthen the focus on social change and development. The workshop will involve presentation and interactive group exercises.

By the end of the workshop, we hope that participants will have a basic understanding of the benefits of ToC thinking, see the relevance of ToC to their work, and feel enthusiastic to learn more about ToC.

Participants and places:
The workshop is designed for researchers focusing on agriculture in low-income countries, with limited knowledge of ToC (or planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning -PMEL), but interest in learning more. There are 20 places available.
