A compilation of three tools developed to discuss incorporating CLA into Activity Design & Implementation.
To help set an activity up for success, we need to design it in such a way that will enable USAID staff and future implementing partners (IPs) to share crucial knowledge, learn from their experience, and adapt their approaches as needed in order to achieve the outcomes sought.
