Term2.png OUTPUT
Products, services and capital goods which are delivered as part of a work, which are expected to serve as relevant factors that can foster a desired change/outcome in a development context. Thus, outputs are any tangible product gained from a project or a work (e.g. publication, flyer, training course, support sessions, papers).[1]


Refers to the final product or service which a programme or project delivers to its intended users. Outputs are a component of a logic model in which they are located between activities and outcomes. A programme or project is considered to be effective when outputs produce desired outcomes.[2]
