Tools and Approaches to Learning for Better Development Programming
Featured on Learning Lab
August Newsletter Out Now
Read the latest edition of Learning Matters, our monthly newsletter! The newsletter features Collective Action, a brand-new collection of resources developed by the iDesign Team in USAID's Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning, as well as in-case-you-missed-it content from last month. (Plus, a sneak preview at the announcement coming next month!)
New Release! Collective Action Collection
Two new guides and a set of case studies on collective action are now available. Collective action - an intentional and agreed-upon process that engages interested parties to take joint actions in support of shared objectives - is critical to helping USAID advance its localization efforts and to promote inclusive development.
Adaptively Managing Summer Transitions
The ability to adapt requires an environment that promotes intentional learning and allows for flexibility in responding to changing contexts and circumstances, either within organizations or programming. Check out the Adaptive Management section of the CLA Toolkit for helpful insights and tools.
Contribute Content to Learning Lab
Learning Lab provides a space for the international development community to access and share resources. Contribute a blog that tells your story; share evidence on what works, or doesn't, in the areas of CLA, monitoring or evaluation; or upload resources that help others apply new learning.
