Signals of Change Self-assessment Tool
Signals of Change offers a way of identifying and documenting progress towards systemic change, in the context of Effective Collaborative Action initiatives. Recognizing these signals as they happen can generate impetus to keep going, and provide feedback on direction and adaptive management, as well as a way to talk about the impact the effort is having on the individuals, community and system.
The Signals of Change Framework and Self-assessment Tool are tightly connected with the Guide to Effective Collaborative Action, which is aimed to be implemented to support the transformation of food and agricultural commodity systems in commodity producing countries with significant environmental and social challenges. But it can also be applied to much broader issues or simpler engagements as well. This guidance note focuses on early signals of change, and shares how to identify them in the context of collaborative action initiatives aimed at transforming food and agricultural commodity systems.
