How theories of change contribute to Livestock and Fish research monitoring

Theories of change have become part of the landscape of CGIAR research programs – also the program on Livestock and Fish.

Livestock and Fish is a complex program characterized by multiple projects spread over a vast geography currently covering nine countries (value chains).

Its delivery of research and development outcomes depends on the creation of pro-poor technological innovations (product lines) and strategic collaboration with a diverse set of actors (researchers, development actors, governments and donors) to facilitate uptake of the innovations at scale.

Recognizing the program’s complexity, a different sort of results-oriented monitoring and evaluation framework is required.

In this report, Keith Child and colleagues share  the program’s experience with a theory of change (ToC) approach to monitoring and evaluation.
