Evidence Act 2022 - Capacity Assessment 2022

Speeches Shim

Evidence generation and use at USAID is decentralized, with central offices in Washington DC providing policy, guidance, and technical assistance to support the operations of Missions in Africa, Asia, Europe and Eurasia, and Latin America and Caribbean. The decentralized structure of the Agency means that evaluations, research, statistics, and analysis efforts, are generally context specific. Decentralization provides opportunities for USAID to generate and use evidence, by leveraging the interests and technical specialization of staff across different geographic areas. USAID’s capacity to generate and use evidence is also guided by policies that address evaluation, research, and data. These include the Evaluation Policy of 2011, updated in 2016 and incorporated into ADS 201 (focus on evidence requirements in the Program Cycle), the USAID Scientific Research Policy, and the USAID Open Data Policy.
