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.
