“Stopping As Success: planning for success from start to exit” (SAS) is a three-year USAID-funded collaborative learning project that is looking at responsible exits and transitions of INGOs from a variety of different contexts. The project is being implemented by a consortium consisting of Peace Direct, Search for Common Ground and CDA Collaborative Learning.
The aim of this website is to provide a knowledge hub for the project. You will find publications, blogs and resources from both the consortium, as well as the peacebuilding sector at large. Across the website, we will be elevating the conversation of aid exits and sharing useful recommendations . The core questions examined by this project are directly linked to a growing number of learning initiatives in the wider international aid sector focused on locally-led development, local ownership and localisation.
We are hopeful that the insights generated from this ongoing learning 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 programmes.
