Tips for Stronger INVEST Proposals

Hello USAID INVEST network members! INVEST was designed to connect USAID with the technical experience it needs, on-demand. We are working to break down barriers between USAID and the right firms for the job.

INVEST Mechanism Close-Up

On their own, international development agencies cannot meet all of their goals for sustainable development. Despite the progress made, fulfilling the Journey to Self-Reliance and the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will require both a better approach to financing and a more effective use of finance. Private sector engagement will increasingly become an essential component of effective development that sets countries on the path to self-sufficiency and creates positive, long-lasting impact on communities.

INVEST on Medium

The initiative often posts on Medium—writing about what drives inclusive growth and sustainable development in emerging markets. Catch up with our latest posts there.
