A Performance Indicator is a measure of the result. It gives a sense of what has been or what is to be achieved.
There are two types of indicators, namely, “Process Indicators” and “Results Indicators.” Process indicators define the indicators for a process or an activity like ‘number of women participating in the training on gender development” and Results Indicators refer to the indicators that indicate the result achieved from the implementing the activity like ‘number of women aware about gender rights.”
Risks & Assumptions
Risks and Assumptions are part of the concept based on the principle that we have less and less control of the project results as we go down and down implementing the project.
For example, ‘Government policies/ officials are supportive of the project activities’ or ‘ongoing peace and stability may get hampered by sporadic violence.’
