This paper builds on a literature review on evaluating systems conducted under the Leveraging Economic Opportunities (LEO) activity, which found issues with the existing frameworks and indicators used for measuring systemic change. It presents a framework that outlines a pathway for systemic change and presents a complementary set of indicator areas, or "domains," that signal systemic changes.
