Local Capacity Strengthening Policy Launch Event
USAID is excited to launch our very first Local Capacity Strengthening (LCS) Policy. We are inviting you to participate in our virtual launch event on Wednesday, October 19 from 8:00am to 9:00am EDT, hosted by the USAID Deputy Administrator Paloma Adams-Allen. The event will live-stream on YouTube, and the recording will be available to the public.
The LCS Policy reaffirms USAID’s commitment to local capacity strengthening by laying out seven principles to guide USAID humanitarian assistance and development programming. While approaches to capacity strengthening vary by sector and context, the LCS Policy gives the Agency a shared framework to inform programming that builds upon the existing strengths of local actors and systems, responds to dynamic local priorities, and aligns with USAID strategic aims.
