SDC has published a revised version of its Project Typology Tool. The primary aim of the tool is to support VSD interventions of SDC to clearly define their approach and orientation. However, the tool is equally relevant and potentially useful for other donors and projects. The tool supports donors and projects in selecting the right partners, and thus in managing their projects and project portfolios in line with the relevant donor strategies, the policy goals of partner countries, and professional standards. This paper is particularly useful at the beginning and the end of project cycles, i.e. in the design stage and in evaluating VSD interventions. It supports the formulation of realistic and plausible outcome and impact expectations of VSD projects.
