It is imperative to understand that the investments implemented in this project will only realise specific products or outputs in terms of restoration and rehabilitation, while falling short of achieving results or outcomes. The only tangible output of a process oriented pilot project is its learnings or trends towards achieving the overall results. 

The challenge in demonstrating results or any changes to the context has underscored the importance of adopting a framework that enables the implementing components in Sri Lanka and Thailand as well as the regional project management team to effectively measure some of the trends towards achieving outcomes or results. This led to the development of a results management framework by the Regional Programme Coordination Unit in concert with the BMZ Project Manager building on the Project Planning Matrix developed at the outset.
