It’s a Win-Win: Strategies for USAID Local Partner Success Oct. 12 Online
For USAID, local solutions are a way of aiding sustainable development and local ownership. During this one hour webinar, we'll aim to demystify the USAID business development process by taking a fresh look at the USAID local solutions initiative, discuss innovative approaches for local organizations to work with USAID and how best to engage with priming implementers.
Hear insights from USAID’s local solutions and contracting teams, a priming partner as well as the inspiring success story of a local partner organization. By facilitating this discussion, Devex hopes to contribute to a better understanding of local solutions, their importance and how all local partners could become success stories.
Our speakers will also share valuable insights on how local organizations can engage with priming implementers in the best way and explore what priming implementers are specifically looking for in their future local partners.
