Press Release

USAID signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Center for Global Development (CGD) – focusing on locally-led evaluation and evidence generation approaches. This partnership launches USAID’s Evidence Localization Initiative, to begin in Africa, contributes to advancing USAID, CGD, and Hewlett's broader priorities on advancing evidence-informed policy and locally-led development.

As part of USAID’s commitment to expanding locally-led development, the new partnership will shift more leadership, ownership, decision-making and implementation to the local people and institutions who possess the capability, networks, and credibility to drive change in their own countries and communities.
