AbstractThis paper presents the results of a desk study that reviewed various project documents to develop an impact typology for ASB in order to clarify and analyze the complex causal relationships between the program’s activities and their ultimate impacts. The study is based on the examination of four ASB projects in Indonesia, Peru, Brazil and West Africa. These cases were selected for the distinctive sets of activities and actual impacts produced and may not be representative of the program as a whole. However, the program typology of impact channels does suggest general lessons that can be learned from the case studies. In particular, this approach clarifies the relationship between the components and mechanics of the program and should help the assessment team understand the unique nature and multilevel structure of ASB.
