(ALE 2024) Where Partnering Locally In Non-Permissive Environments Works

May 22, 2024

Wed | 08:30 AM - 10:00 AM EDT

USAID’s Local Works program and participating Missions are shifting power to local actors in non-permissive environments. The program is capturing learning on how local actors adaptively manage and find creative ways of advancing local humanitarian and development objectives in complex environments where uncertainty, instability, inaccessibility, or insecurity constrain USAID’s ability to operate. USAID Mission staff and implementing partners will share recent evidence and experience on how local partnerships can be effective to support development outcomes where international actors are limited.
