The Program Cycle is USAID’s operational model for planning, implementing, assessing, and adapting development programming in a given region or country. The Program Cycle is how policy gets translated into action and how USAID supports countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance.
USAID Learning Lab hosts three toolkits to provide USAID staff and implementing partners with a curated set of resources to plan, implement and integrate monitoring, evaluating and CLA practices into their programs.
Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) is a framework and a set of practices for strengthening organizational learning and the conditions that enable it throughout the Program Cycle to improve our development effectiveness, and support countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance.
USAID/E3's Biodiversity Cross-Mission Learning Program
The concept for this video was a winning submission from the 2015 CLA Case Competition. The video highlights CLA in action through the Conservation Enterprises Cross-Mission Learning Program launched in 2015 by USAID/E3 Forestry and Biodiversity Office (FAB). USAID E3/FAB's Biodiversity Cross-Mission Learning Program works to increase the effectiveness of USAID biodiversity conservation programming by finding out what works, what doesn't, and why.
