USAID’s KMOL Policy is now live!

USAID's new Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning Policy is now live. The vision of the KMOL Policy is to improve USAID’s ability to harness our cumulative knowledge, learn from it, and apply those lessons to its work to achieve better results. The Policy provides structure and sets expectations for how KMOL operates across USAID and how operating units can effectively apply KMOL to their work.
