USAID-Innovation, Technology, and Research

USAID-Innovation, Technology, and Research USAID’s Innovation, Technology, and Research (ITR) Hub leads USAID in experimentation and open inn The Innovation, Technology and Research Hub within the Bureau of Development, Democracy, and Innovation seeks to increase the application of science, technology, innovation, and partnerships to achieve, sustain and extend the Agency’s development impact to help hundreds of millions of people lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Instead of selecting a proposed solution to problems in areas such as water, health, food security and nutrition, energy, education, and climate change, the Innovation, Technology and Research Hub brings the problem to the table with our partners and works together to catalyze great ideas and discover, test and scale them with the aim of helping more than 200 million people in the next five years.

Equip a mother – equip a family! With USAID support, World Vision Bangladesh is empowering mothers and families in southwest Bangladesh to increase their income and build resilience so that children can reach their full potential! Kakoli Das, a mother and entrepreneur, is one of the 199,490 moms reached through USAID - US Agency for International Development’s ‘Nobo Jatra - New Beginning’ – a seven year Resilience Food Security Activity, implemented by World Vision in Bangladesh. Kakoli is a skilled bamboo basket weaver trained by Nobo Jatra and earning an income of $115 per month, enabling her to provide for her family and ensure proper growth of her 5 months old son, Pritam! With USAID support, World Vision has trained 18,267 people like the Das family with market driven skills in bamboo crafts, paper box making, tailoring etc. that provide regular incomes all year round and ensures a better life than before!

“All thanks to Nobo Jatra – now I can earn and provide for my family. As a mother, I want to ensure a better future for my child – a future with health and education. A future that he deserves!” Says Kakoli.

This #MothersDay, USAID and World Vision are paying tribute to all the mothers – superheroes in disguise!

Happy Mother's Day!

A lot of what USAID does relies on this geographer | Federal News Network

In a new interview with Federal News Network’s Tom Temin, Carrie Stokes, USAID’s Chief Geographer, discusses how the geographic approach to development helps the Agency illuminate hotspots of vulnerability and make data-informed decisions about where their investments are most needed.

Geographic information is crucial to agency missions almost everywhere. And it’s especially true for the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Digital Skills Boost Confidence and Income by USAID publications on Exposure

“[After the training], my income increased from 50 USD to 200 USD per month.”

Som Yat, 29, a young Cambodian who didn’t know much about digital tools or platforms before 2020, is now a full-fledged microentrepreneur, selling products online to earn money to support her family. USAID’s Digital Asia Accelerator supported this journey. The Digital Asia Accelerator, run by DAI Global, works with partners and key stakeholders across the Southeast Asia region and in Mongolia to advance the use of digital skills for micro, small and medium sized enterprises and help citizens stay safe online, promoting an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet across the Indo-Pacific region.

Before 2019, Som Yat, 29, didn’t know much about digital tools or platforms. Like many young people across Cambodia, she had never received any formal training on digital tools despite the country’s rapid growth in internet accessibility and social media use.

These measures included a rapid assessment of the surging pandemic's impact on agricultural markets and #foodsecurity in Uganda. The assessment used the Market System Monitoring Activity’s innovative systems mapping approach, implemented by the #mithumanitariansupplychainlab in partnership with The George Washington University.
