This publication was originally published by USAID Learning Lab. It was produced in collaboration with Dexis Consulting Group and USAID/Honduras. 

This case story and presentation was developed from a collaboration between the USAID/Honduras funded Monitoring and Evaluation Support for Collaboration Learning and Adaptation (MESCLA) and Transforming Market Systems (TMS) activities to document and share experiences and lessons learned using the 5Rs systems framework in the design and implementation of the TMS activity.

The case story documents integration of the 5Rs framework across three levels of activity design and implementation: 1) Activity Solicitation and Contract; 2) Design and Implementation of Activity Inception Phase; 3) Design of the Activity ME&L Framework. The document concludes with a brief discussion of the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for use of the 5Rs framework in design, implementation, ME&L of development activities seeking to affect systemic change.
