To accelerate planning for change, the three "Preconditions" of the Social Movement Action (SMA) Framework ["Change is valued and necessary"; "Receptivity to change" and "Social movements are recognized"] and three of the action cycle phases of the Knowledge-to-Action (KTA) Framework ["Identify the problem"; "Adapt knowledge to local context" and "Assess barriers and facilitators to knowledge use"] can be applied as complementary frameworks.  

Three of the relevant framework components are highlighted below. For more details on these and the other components, see the framework pages.
