Tamarack is delighted to have collaborated with CASIS in the translation and linguistic review of this valuable Tool for Assessing the Effects of Local Intersectoral Action. We look forward to being able to share this tool more widely with our partners and network across Canada.

The Tool for Assessing the Effects of Local Intersectoral Action is an interactive online tool. It generates information for assessing the effects (aka impacts) of local intersectoral action in living environments.

It first uses a timeline to map key events in an intersectoral action project. Each of these events is then associated with a transitional outcome taken from an inventory of transitional outcome that chart the progression of local intersectoral action towards its effects. The exercise allows actors to identify a chain of transitional outcomes specific to each transformation observed in the living environment(s).

Afterwards, the chains of transitional outcomes are illustrated in diagrams. The diagrams highlight the dynamics of how intersectoral action processes relate to their effects.

What does the Tool include?

Module 1

Taking ownership of the foundations of the Tool

Module 2

Mapping the key events of a project and translating them into a chain of transitional outcomes

Module 3

Diagramming a project's chain of transitional outcomes, identifying what has been learned, and reinvesting it in the action
