Development actors increasingly agree that managing programs adaptively – especially complex interventions – can improve their effectiveness. A growing body of evidence supports this claim. But what does adaptive management look like in practice? And what does it require of managers and funders to make it happen?

Mercy Corps commissioned Engineers Without Borders Canada to help answer these questions. The result is an in-depth case study on adaptive management within Mercy Corps’ USAID-funded Northern Karamoja Growth, Health, and Governance Program.
