Defining the Project Goal and Objectives: How to write Proposals on Projects addressing Climate Change

Continued from the Main Page

Once we have the project goal and objectives at hand, next we need to define our project goal and objectives. What are we trying to achieve? The goal can be reducing the impact of climate change since any goal is just a contribution of the implementing agency to something that is also targeted by other entities such as government or other agencies. Objectives need to be specific: For example, increasing plantation in the project area or enhancing the understanding of climate change issues. As usual, objectives have to be “SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.”

Remember not to confuse objectives with activities.
