Journey to Self-Reform: Assessing the USAID Transformation Agenda

November 5, 2019 • 9:30 – 11:00 am EST
In recent years, USAID has undertaken several significant reforms to support developing countries on their 'journey to self-reliance.' The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently published an assessment of these reforms. The GAO established that USAID has generally addressed most key practice areas, but more work can be done. The report encourages a renewed focus on outcome-oriented performance measurements and highlights key workforce planning issues needed to support broader reform efforts.
