Project Objectives should be:
SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.
Project objectives are the specific objectives for which the project works to achieve them within a stipulated time. They should directly address the problem mentioned in the Problem Statement. They should be specific: the more specific it is the better to design activities, indicators and the Logical Framework Analysis. Specific objectives also help address the problem stated and convince the donor easily.
- Think about what success means for your project and how you would show that success
- Refer to the results you expect from the project
- Describe the focus population and the desired change among the population
- Include the location and time period for each objective
- Reflect the intended changes in systemic conditions or behaviors that must be achieved to accomplish the goal/strategic objective
- Objectives should have measurable indicators which show what, when, and how conditions, behaviors, and practices will change
- Objectives must be verifiable at some point during the execution of the project
A good objective can be:
“To increase the income-level of women farmers from 5% to 15% in the district.”
