Policy Implementation Matrix Template

A policy implementation matrix (also called an action plan matrix) shows how each item in a policy will be implemented in practice. This type of matrix can be used for the implementation of national or organisational policies.


This template is appropriate when:

  • You want to show how a policy will be implemented.
  • You want to track the implementation of a policy.

This template is NOT appropriate when:

  • Your organisation or donor has their own policy implementation matrix that you should use.
  • You want to measure the results or impact of the policy. In this case you should use an M&E Framework Template.
