    On July 22, 2022, USAID opened a truncated comment period for its new, draft Agency-wide Policy Framework.
    Humentum will be gathering member comments - particularly as they relate to localization/locally led development, equity/DEI, and building partnerships of consequence to advance development, and submitting them by the AUGUST 1 deadline

    Here is the draft Policy Framework for your review. If your organization will be submitting comments directly to USAID, please do so through USAID's webpage using the online submission mechanism. For those organizations interested submitting comments through Humentum, without attribution to your individual organization, kindly send me your notes/observations/recommendations to me by NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2022 at
