Measuring progress: The Integrated Support Framework (ISF)

One of the main takeaways from implementation in the first pilot countries was that, in order to build true ownership over the dialogue process, one cannot predetermine its outcomes from the outset. It turned out to be an impossible exercise for our partners to develop a guiding logical framework at the start of the dialogue process. However, a results and monitoring framework was still necessary to keep track of the dialogue process - by both the Dialogue Host and the donor supporting it. The Integrated Support Framework is a response to this need, as it provides an accurate snapshot of the dialogue process as well as its different results and outcomes.
