The Facilitation Approach at USAID: A Discussion Paper
This paper provides an overview of the facilitation approach with information drawn from its use in market systems development. It is not designed to include all the relevant issues and debates related to the approach. Instead, the goal is to prompt further discussion and contribute to ongoing learning to refine what it means to implement a facilitation approach to development and how it supports CLA. Examples from multiple sectors are highlighted to illustrate its potential relevance across USAID’s programming.
