Other, please see description for details


Wednesday, 26 April, 2017 - 12:30 to 13:30

In this talk Professor Fforde discussed how risk and uncertainty are best coped with in development practice. In doing this, he will examine the theories of change that underpin aid practitioners’ use of tools such as the logical framework approach. He will contend that in many situations we should explore methods of devising policy and organising practice that formally assume context is unpredictable and unsuited to tools like the logical framework approach.
