Collaboration Models in USAID Programs

About the Project

Throughout 2021 and 2022, LINC led the “Collaboration Models in USAID Programs: Utilization Focused Research to Promote Effective Multi-Stakeholder Collaboration” research and learning activity.

The objective of this global research project was to better understand how collaboration models (e.g. Collective Impact, SCALE), have been adapted and applied in the context of USAID activities over the next several years.

Utilizing a case study-based approach, our team of experts is codified ten applications of collective/collaborative action into a taxonomy of approaches, accounting for various contextual and implementation-related variables.

Extending from this learning, the activity team then worked to develop training and resource material to help interested staff incorporate these collaboration models into USAID programming, among other products. Development of these training and resource materials will be based upon user testing and feedback conducted through multiple sense-making workshops over the course of this eight-month assignment. This project is expected to conclude in 2022.

This activity is funded by USAID/Policy Planning, and Learning Bureau (PPL/SPP)’s iDesign office, under the Innovative Design Services (IDS) mechanism.
