Assessment of the Implementation of USAID’s Urban Policy

USAID’s “Sustainable Service Delivery in an Increasingly Urbanized World” Policy (Urban Policy) was launched in 2013 in order to “promote sustainable service delivery that brings large-scale benefits to urban residents.” Recently, USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) commissioned the Assessment of the Implementation of USAID’s Urban Policy to identify progress, challenges, and lessons learned during the first five years of implementation of the policy and to provide recommendations for the future. The assessment drew on semi-structured interviews with over 70 USAID staff and implementing partners, survey responses from over 100 USAID staff in Washington and the field, as well as in-depth analyses of program cycle documents.

Please join us at the Society for International Development – Washington Chapter on August 8, 2019, at 3:00 PM, where USAID Counselor Chris Milligan, the Urban assessment technical lead, USAID’s Urban Team lead, and the Deputy Director of the Office of Policy at USAID will discuss the assessment’s findings and implications.
