– ‘Theory of Change Review: A report commissioned by Comic Relief’ (James, 2011) reviews existing literature and development sector experiences to identify who is using theory of change, what approach they are taking and what they are learning from the process Download Report.

– ‘Review of the use of ‘Theory of Change’ in international development in 2012 (Isabel Vogel, August 2012), commissioned by The UK Department of International Development is useful to ‘identify areas of consensus, debate and innovation in order to inform a more consistent approach within DFID and to share this learning with the wider international development sector.’ Download Executive Summary.
