Framework for Change provides a basic logic framework to understand the complexity of factors influencing the development of inclusive, participated and integrated projects. It is a conceptual map to navigate transformative processes at large, completed by a set of questions that you should ask yourself along the path and a collection of tools to inspire visionary and inclusive solutions.

The framework is based on four basic dimensions of change (fields), four essential variables and eight key moments.

At the centre of the scheme is the function of alignment, which represents the key role of those in charge of steering a transformative process: facilitators, managers, planners, project coordinators,  community activators . Their essential responsibility is to enhance the alignment of different perspectives and variables and to coordinate tasks and responsibilities.
