Please join us to hear policymakers from inside and outside the US government discuss their experience applying the principle of country ownership, reflecting on its importance, and discussing challenges and trade-offs. Also available will be new research from CGD’s US Development Policy Initiative that reviews US development agencies’ progress implementing country ownership, identifies constraints the agencies face, and offers recommendations for better execution of a country ownership approach in practice.

The 90-minute panel will be followed by a reception.
