Our mission is that the insights generated from this project will inform strategies for building responsible exits and transitions, which highlight existing local capacity and strengthen the case for more inclusive and participatory peacebuilding and development programs.
“Stopping As Success: Transitioning to Locally Led Development” (SAS) is a collaborative learning project. The project looks at 20 responsible exits and transitions of international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) from 13 different contexts. The project is being implemented by a consortium consisting of Peace Direct, Search for Common Ground and CDA Collaborative Learning, with support and funding from USAID’s Bureau of Economic Growth, Education and Environment/Office of Local Sustainability.
This website is a knowledge hub for the project, and seeks to elevate the conversation of responsible INGO aid exits and transitions.
