Self-Reliance Learning Agenda

Speeches Shim

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 journey to self-reliance.

The Self-Reliance Learning Agenda (SRLA) is both a process and a set of products. It generates, collects, synthesizes, and disseminates evidence and learning, and facilitates their use to inform USAID’s policies, programs and operations.  Complementary work streams build a base of evidence and practice to support USAID’s self-reliance approach.

The SRLA also contributes to broader discussions about aid effectiveness and local ownership within the international development community.

USAID is excited to learn from you.  Please contact us at to share your experiences or evidence.
