Logic model: outcomes, outputs and activity streams
Final outcomes
  • Reduced vulnerability of individuals, communities, regions and economic sectors to the impacts of climate change (A E F G H)
  • Increased capacity of individuals, communities and economic sectors to adapt to climate change (B C D E F J K)
Intermediate Outcomes
  • Targeted communities and sectors address adaptation in their planning (A B E G J K)
  • Targeted individuals, communities and sectors implement adaptation measures (C D E F G H J K)
Immediate Outcomes
  • Targeted communities and sectors recognize the need for adaptation (B E F G)
  • Targeted communities and sectors assess their risks and opportunities arising from climate change (B C G)

1. The revised logic model maps program elements to their respective activities, outputs and intended outcomes. Each program element is aligned to at least one outcome at each level (immediate, intermediate and final).This model was used to guide the design of the evaluation’s survey and interview methodologies.
2. DFO’s ACCASP supports the Adaptation Theme’s intended outcomes by supporting DFO programs and management, rather than through the provision of services directly to the general public.
3. The amounts provided in the Resources row represent the total funding allocation for the Adaptation Theme activities for the five year period from 2011-12 to 2014-15, including new and existing funding and PWGSC accommodation amounts.
