Training on Project Design using Logical Framework Approach(June 18,2018-June 20,2018)

About the course

Project design is one of the critical phases in the project life cycle. How successful a project becomes will largely depend on how well it was designed. This course provides the skills on the Logical Framework Approach (LFA), the method used to achieve high quality project standards.
