Policy, Planning, and Learning Policy Analysis Team Support

Cutting-edge research and targeted guidance in development policy.

Context

USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning, and Learning (PPL) engaged Dexis to help advance core PPL priorities and strengthen the Agency’s position as a thought leader on key development and policy issues.

 

Approach

The Dexis policy analysis team performed research and produced guidance to inform Agency-wide policies and strategies in areas ranging from financial inclusion and gender integration to youth development. The team developed cogent analytical pieces, delivered presentations on emerging priorities in global development, researched “what-if” scenarios and other policy analysis inputs, and cultivated strong relationships with external partners and stakeholders. The Dexis team also worked to improve the Agency’s capacity for evidence-based decision-making; develop tools and processes to support increased policy integration; and contribute to knowledge sharing and learning through papers, articles, and engagement opportunities.

Achievements

Produced a collection of 18 fact sheets in conjunction with USAID’s Inclusive Development Working Group focused on strengthening economic growth, national security and stability, and global health outcomes through investments in gender equality, youth, and the inclusion of religious and ethnic minorities including indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, and LGBTI groups.
Performed an assessment to determine if the approach and theories underpinning the Development Response to Violent Extremism and Insurgency Policy remained relevant and adequate.
Analyzed utilization and best management practices of current partnerships within USAID’s regional and pillar bureaus.
