Managing Risks, Assumptions and Dependencies

The Risks and Assumptions column is the fourth column of the logical framework. The assumptions describe the situations, events, conditions or decisions which are necessary for the success of the project, but which are largely or completely beyond the control of the project's management. Risks are events that may have a negative impact on the project.

Logframe with assumptions column on the right

The fourth column and the first column have an if… then… relation. If the assumptions in column four are met, or if the risks do not occur, then we'll achieve what we've set out to do in column one.
