|APLU Knowledge Center Webinar: Exploring USAID’s Local Solutions and the Local Systems Framework
Join us for a webinar on Sep 10, 2015 at 2:00 PM EDT.
Join the APLU Knowledge Center for Advancing Development through Higher Education for a webinar on USAID’s Local Solutions (part of USAID Forward), which encourages sustainability through country ownership of the development agenda. During this webinar, we’ll explore the Local Systems Framework, which provides a foundation for engaging local systems in ways that support local ownership, local entrepreneurship and local accountability and emphasizes the importance of this approach to the design and implementation of development programs. We’ll also discuss the role of higher education institutions in light of the Local Systems Framework and where Local Systems and Human and Institutional Capacity Building (HICD) intersect.
Joining us for the webinar will be Liz Warfield, Local Solutions Coordinator at USAID and David Jacobstein, USAID Democracy Specialist who was part of the core team who drafted the Local Systems Framework.
Please feel free to send questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This webinar should be of special interest to chief international officers, higher education administrators, faculty members and students interested in creating projects that focus on building sustainability with local partners.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
