A Results Framework [1] is a portrayal of the development hypotheses through which a Mission expects to achieve the Goal of a Country (or local government unit) Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS)[2], as part of a Macro journey at the national (or Local) Level of scope.

Visually, a Results Framework brings together several, often quite distinct, streams of results, which function synergistically to produce broad development changes. Thus, an economic growth result in a Results Framework might join with a health (#sdg3 - Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages) and an education (#sdg4 - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning opportunities for all) results to realize CDCS Goal stated in citizen welfare terms.
