U.S. Agency for International Development

Our center's relationship with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has expanded significantly in recent years, as we use IFs to inform the organization’s five-year Development Cooperation Strategies at both the regional and country level. Most recently, in partnership with our colleagues at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) in South Africa, we produced trend and scenario analysis reports for USAID missions in Ethiopia and the Southern Africa region. In 2016, a team of our researchers held an IFs training with the USAID mission in Jakarta, Indonesia. We also completed a report on development trends in Uganda in 2015, which directly influenced the country mission's five-year strategy for budgeting, planning, and resource allocation, and led to further ongoing analysis of key development indicators at the subnational level.
