3sd Research develops actor level concepts for understanding and measuring how systems change.

Concepts developed by 3sd are designed to bring greater clarity and detail to understanding of complex change processes in market systems and other organisational, social and socio-ecological systems.

3sd works closely with the Springfield Centre in applying these frameworks to international development programmes that use market systems approaches.

The Mechanisms of Social Change framework underpins much of 3sd’s work. More information can be found on this framework here.
