INVITATION: Humentum Member Locally Led Working Group

  • 1.  INVITATION: Humentum Member Locally Led Working Group

    Posted 04-27-2022 11:23

    Dear Members:
    I write to gauge interest in and extend an invitation to a new Humentum locally-led development policy working group. The purpose of the working group will be to develop recommendations for donor policies and procedures that foster locally-led development, as well as craft responses to draft/proposed policies as they are rolled-out by the donor community. USAID, for instance, is in the process of crafting a variety of new procurement, Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Strategy revisions, and locally-led policies that will reshape the development landscape in the years to come. Much of this will be rolled-out in the coming few months. 

    If you are interested in joining a group of your peers to discuss the revisions and reforms needed to achieve locally-led development targets at USAID and generally, please email me by no later than COB May 2, 2022, at If there is sufficient interest to form the working group, we will convene virtually in the coming few weeks and as practical thereafter. Stay tuned! 

    Cynthia Smith
    Director, Government Affairs and Advocacy
