Narrative
 
 
 
Some communities use issues as the framework for indicators. This tends to cross organizational boundaries a little more than the theme-based framework and so is more apt to result in indicators that show linkages.

However, as with the theme-based framework, it is important that all members of the community are represented so that a balanced view of the community results.
