About Policy LINK

The five-year (2019 – 2024) USAID-funded Feed the Future Policy Leadership, Interactions, Networks and Knowledge (Policy LINK) project implemented by DAI Global LLC will strengthen the capacity of local actors and institutions to lead and manage the agricultural transformation process and contribute effectively and collectively to improved, broad-based food security policy outcomes.

Specifically, the program aims to strengthen food security policy systems by investing in and reinforcing productive human and social capital and developing strategic partnerships that help bring these innovations and capacity investments to scale in order to achieve a critical mass of local actors with the ability and opportunity to effect positive policy change through collective action.

Policy LINK in South Sudan

The LINK project will open an office in Juba, South Sudan in July 2020 in order to provide backbone support to the Partnership for Recovery and Resilience (PfRR). PfRR is an unprecedented cross-sector, multi-donor, multi-agency platform and collective of partners established to increase the agency of local populations in select geographic areas to identify and respond to their priority needs for building resilience and reducing vulnerability. With this approach, the community, local governments, and donor agencies are improving their use of evidence to inform joint decision making at local, national, regional and global levels; however, the central focus is to strengthen the community’s ability to withstand and respond to shocks, including environmental, economic, political and those related to local conflicts.

The PfRR is grounded in the concepts of collective impact and collaborative governance. It intends to reduce the humanitarian burden in the targeted communities and make the use of donor resources more effectively by promoting greater self-reliance, reinforced by external assistance.

LINK will provide backbone support to PfRR partners in Juba and in select regions to enhance coordination and effectiveness towards the realization of resilience objectives. This includes support to PfRR structures and working groups with the establishment of core monitoring and evaluation frameworks and internal knowledge management practices, and establishment of partnership framework building blocks.
