The Kaleidoscope Model (KM) assesses key factors that drive policy change.
This brief distills findings from 50 policy reform episodes, including 38 micro-nutrient policies and 12 agricultural input policy reforms.
These case studies identified four major opportunities for stakeholders interested in supporting policy reform:
- financial support and
- institutional reform.
In picking promising arenas for engagement in policy reform, interested stakeholders should look for settings in which these four elements converge.
