IInstitutionalizing Local Ownership for Sustainability

What: Within USAID and PEPFAR, the policies, indicators, and program objectives for country ownership and accountability continue to both evolve and become institutionalized. Initiatives like USAID’s Local Solutions and PEPFAR’s Sustainability Agenda are significantly changing program strategies and funding decisions. In the wider development community, new tools for creating and measuring ownership and accountability are gaining prominence. With the departure of USAID’s Administrator, the panel will discuss the future of these initiatives and the changes already in progress at the operational level.
