Rethinking systemic change – discussion paper


This discussion paper briefly presents the key messages from the literature review and seven principles drawing from this literature. The principles can be used by market development practitioners, including technical advisers in donor organisations, programme designers and team leaders, to shape programmes and become more in line with how change happens in the economy. A list of selected references is presented at the end.

A technical paper contains a much more detailed discussion of the findings and the principles and an extensive list of references.
