- defining realistic expected results based on appropriate analysis;
- clearly identifying program beneficiaries and designing programmes with them to meet their needs and priorities;
- using results information to make effective management decisions;
- monitoring progress toward expected results and resources spent with the use of appropriate indicators;
- identifying and managing risks;
- increasing knowledge by learning lessons and integrating them into decisions; and
- reporting on results achieved and the resources used.
- Result: A result is describable or measurable development change resulting from a cause and effect relationship.
- Development result: These are the consequences of actions taken to meet certain purposes with a “measurable change” taking place in a given development situation.
- Input: The resources required, including money, time or effort, technology to produce a result.
- Output (short-term results): The immediate, visible, concrete and tangible consequences of project inputs.
- Outcome (medium-term results): The short-term effect of the project. This is generally the level where the beneficiaries or end-users take ownership of the project and Canada Fund assistance comes to an end.
- Impact (longer-term results): Broader, higher level, long-term effect or consequences linked to the goal or vision.
- Indicators: Seeks to measure a result, to provide evidence that a result has been achieved or to provide a signal that progress is being made towards the achievement of a result. Indicator is a means of measuring actual results against planned or expected results in terms of quality, quantity and timeliness.
- The environmental effects of the project, including the effects of malfunctions or accidents that may occur in connection with the project and any cumulative environmental effects that are likely to result from the project in combination with other projects or activities that have been or will be carried out
- Identification of whether an adverse environmental effect is significant or not
- Comments received from the public, if any
- Mitigation measures that would eliminate / reduce significant adverse environmental effects of the project, and that are technically and economically feasible
- Any other relevant information such as the need for and alternatives to the project
- Environmental Components: These are the features of the biophysical and human environment in the area affected by the project. The biophysical components include topography, soil, vegetation, surface water sources (river, lake, pond etc.), natural drainage, climate, wildlife, groundwater, air, ecosystem, etc. The human environment components include type of indigenous population, gender issues, human settlements, economic characteristics, the use of land and resources, places of worship, historic sites, meeting places and so on.
- Environmental Effects: An environmental effect is defined as any change that the project may cause in the environment, including any effect of such change on health and socio-economic conditions, on physical and cultural heritage, on the current use of lands and resources for traditional purposes by aboriginal persons, or any structure, site or thing that is of historical, archaeological, paleontological or architectural significance.
- Cumulative Effects: The environmental effects that are likely to result from a project in combination with other projects or activities that have been or will be carried out. An assessment of cumulative environmental effects takes into consideration the temporal and geographic boundaries of the project and the interactions among the project's environmental effects and past and future projects or activities.
- Mitigation Measure: Any specific action taken to eliminate, reduce or control the adverse environmental effects of a project.
- Significance of Adverse Environmental Effects: For projects subject to environmental assessments, determinations of how CIDA will proceed are based on an assessment of the significance of likely adverse environmental effects. The following factors should be taken into account when deciding whether an adverse environmental effect is significant: a) Magnitude of the effect, b) Geographic extent, c) Duration and frequency of the effect, d) Degree to which the effect is reversible, and e) The environmental context of the effect. An effect may be significant if it occurs in areas / regions that are already degraded, or are ecologically fragile with little resilience to stress.-
