On January 28, 2016 the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (E3) hosted its biannual open house.

About the Event:

The purpose of this event was to communicate and engage with E3’s relevant stakeholders, including implementing partners and others interested in working with E3.

The morning was broken up into a short plenary session, followed by more in depth breakout discussions pertaining to E3’s technical sectors. Throughout the event, a marketplace was open to meet with staff from all E3 offices and learn more about the work USAID is doing around the world. There was an optional information session called Outcomes from Paris Conference of Parties 21 and Climate Risk Screening at USAID.
