Adapting to learn and learning to adapt: Practical insights from international development projectsBrinkerhoff, D., & Frazer, S. - 2018 - RTI
Adaptive programming and management principles focused on learning, experimentation, and evidence-based decision making are gaining traction with donor agencies and implementing partners in international development. Adaptation calls for using learning to inform adjustments during project implementation. This requires information gathering methods that promote reflection, learning and adaption, beyond reporting on pre-specified data. A focus on adaptation changes traditional thinking about program cycle.
Reflections on Ten Years of USAID’s Experience with Political Economy Analysis and Thinking and Working PoliticallyBrinkerhoff, D., & Cassidy, M. - 2023 - TWP CoP
The global Thinking and Working Politically (TWP) Community of Practice (CoP), the Washington DC TWP CoP, and USAID organised a webinar on 5 December 2022 to take stock of how USAID and its partners have used PEA to inform programme strategy, design and implementation, and support TWP. This paper synthesises the key points arising from the webinar, including observations on the impacts, opportunities, challenges, and prospects for PEA/TWP to become more deeply adopted and sustained as a...

Many international donor and developing country agencies favour the blueprint model, despite its...

The six case studies in Governance and Service Delivery: Practical Applications of Social Accountability Across Sectors illustrate the multiple ways citizen participation in accountability – called social accountability – can lead to positive effects on governance, citizen empowerment, and service delivery. Drawing on their extensive experience implementing international donor-funded programs and projects, the authors examine six recent RTI International projects in Africa and Asia. The...
Integrated Governance: Achieving Governance Results and Contributing to Sector Outcomes (RR-0046-2205; RTI Press Publication)Frazer, S., Granius, M., Brinkerhoff, D. W., & McGregor, L. - 2022 - RTI Press
Achieving broad-based socio-economic development requires interventions that bridge disciplines, strategies, and stakeholders. Effective sustained progress requires more than simply an accumulation of sector projects, and poverty reduction, individual wellbeing, community development, and societal advancement do not fall neatly into sectoral categories. However, researchers and practitioners recognize key operational challenges to achieving effective integration that stem from the structures...
