The GPSA’s theory of action (ToA) – which describes the GPSA’s role in contributing to change - and Results Framework are key building blocks of its learning for results work. In 2020, after a process of learning and reflection with our partners, the GPSA introduced a new iteration of these documents. They build on lessons from GPSA-supported operations between 2012 and 2019 as well as the growing body of evidence about social accountability, governance and development.
