Local organizations play a crucial role in improving development outcomes, including nutrition, due to their context-specific knowledge and skills, resources, and networks. We pursued a learning agenda to collect lessons learned from the capacity strengthening support provided to local organizations working in nutrition to help close evidence gaps around what strategies work best to deliver on local priorities.

This brief synthesizes findings from two years of USAID Advancing Nutrition’s work with the New Partnerships Initiative partners implementing nutrition programming in Kenya and Burkina Faso and with local civil society organizations in Kenya. The lessons and recommendations presented here are based on USAID Advancing Nutrition’s experience working with local partners from 2020 to 2023.
