Co-Creation Discussion Note (ADS 201)
The purpose of this Discussion Note is to share practical approaches on how to design USAID activities using co-creation methods. This Discussion Note recognizes that many Missions are experimenting with approaches to co-creation and seeks to stimulate new ideas to deepen USAID's engagement with partners and key stakeholders during the design of development programming.
This note highlights that there are many enabling paths for co-creation, whether through acquisition or assistance procedures, government-to-government (G2G) agreements, or public-private partnerships. The note also explores implications that a co-creation process may have on activity implementation, monitoring, evaluation and learning.
