Welcome to the Collective Action Blog Series!
Each month, the iDesign team will feature blog posts from guest authors across the Agency highlighting their work with Collective Action, the utility of the Collective Action guides, the findings from the research, and/or connections to other USAID frameworks and approaches. As you follow along, you will see that the conditions for shifting power to local actors and fostering inclusion are gaining momentum, and there is already a wealth of resources and experience to build on. Indeed, the evidence in these guides do not represent the totality of experiences with Collective Action in USAID programs.
