We're still working on this section, so please check back later for clear guidance which will give you a solid understanding of how the framework can be used to design a programme theory of change.

  2. Dive Deep with Resources - For those looking to delve deep into the ABC Framework, our Resources section will be a treasure trove. Start with the original paper published in the American Journal of Evaluation in 2020, or read a less theoretical brochure detailing the framework's core steps. Please feel free to share relevant resources to be posted on this page, via the contact form in the About section.

  3. Real-World Applications - The strength of a framework lies in its applicability. To showcase this, our Case Studies section highlights real-world applications of the ABC Framework across diverse contexts and geographies. These stories underline both the challenges and benefits faced when implementing the framework, offering a holistic view of its practicality.


This is just the start of the journey. We're excited for you to join us in advancing the practice of making sense of complexity!
