Fueling locally-driven development.
The USAID Local Sustainability (LS) Office within the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment was focused on deepening the Agency’s partnerships with local development actors to facilitate sustainable development. Through grants, capacity building, and material support, LS helped address challenges that local organizations face in their efforts to play leading roles in their own countries.
Dexis provided technical and management experts to the LS Office in civil society, governance, private enterprise, private capital, social enterprise, fundraising, domestic capital mobilization, community philanthropy, capacity development, evaluation, media, and organizational management.
