Long term, over all aim. Project contributes to it.
Can be more than one.

The identification of this higher objective helps
to assess the economic, social and political
relevance of the project’s immediate
objective(s) and the appropriateness of the
project in the light of the priorities of the workers
movement/country.

This work-plan will contribute to achieving the
following:
1.

   Immediate Objectives
End of the project situation. What the project
aims “to achieve”

Do not describe an immediate objective using
verbs such as:
"to study“; "to assist“; "to discuss“; "to
research“; "to stimulate“; to raise" awareness“;

Such verbs indicate activities rather than
objectives

Immediate objective must be:
Specific; Measurable; Achievable; Realistic;
Time-bound.                                        6
Immediate Objectives (contd)
Example: institutional development project:
At the end of the project a ... (workers' organisation,
institute, etc.) will have been established [or
strengthened] and is capable of providing the following
services … (or perform the following tasks) … for
(identify the clients including age, sex and other
characteristics).

OR use (in case of direct support project):
At the end of this project, the following result(s)/
situation(s) will be achieved:

    ……...
                                                          7
Key Outputs/Direct Results
Products resulting from the Project; depend usually on
the immediate objectives

Ex: The number of trainers trained (male? female?),
new programs designed, reports published, Number
of employment opportunities created, a number of men
and women trained, credit schemes established,

(1) For Immediate Objective 1

      …......

                                                         8
               Activities
Inputs of the project are transformed into outputs
through activities;
List the activities in chronological/ strategic/
logistic order.
Organize activities to ensure participation of
women;
In order to ensure appropriate linkages between
the immediate objectives, outputs and activities,
it is recommended that they be presented in the
following way:


                                                 9
     Activities (Contd)

Immediate objective 1: …
    Output 1.1: …
          Activity 1.1.1:, 1.1.2, etc.
    Output 1.2: …
          Activity 1.2.1, 1.2.2, etc.

Immediate objective 2: …
    Output 2.1: …
          Activity 2.1.1, 2.1.2, etc.
