Self-Reliance Learning Agenda Fact Sheet

Self-Reliance is a country’s capacity to plan, finance, and implement solutions to local development challenges, as well as the commitment to see these through effectively, inclusively, and with accountability.
Policy makers and development partners alike need to understand how best to design and implement policies and programs and foster relationships that support countries on their journeys to self-reliance.
The Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) and the Global Development Lab (Lab) are leading USAID’s Self-Reliance Learning Agenda (SRLA). Both a process and a set of products, the SRLA generates, collects, synthesizes, and disseminates evidence and learning, and facilitates their use to inform USAID’s efforts to support countries on their journeys to self-reliance. The SRLA also aims to contribute to broader discussions in international development around aid effectiveness and local ownership. The SRLA consists of several complementary work streams that, together, build a base of evidence and practice to support USAID’s self-reliance approach.

In addition to the overarching learning questions, the following list of illustrative sub-questions was compiled during consultations with stakeholders in Missions and Washington Bureaus and Offices.
