Enduring Results Study 3.0 Summary Report

  • Date Posted: January 12, 2022
  • Organizations/Projects: LASER PULSE Program
  • Donor Type: U.S. Agency for International Development

USAID recognizes that the private sector is a critical stakeholder in driving and sustaining outcomes capable of moving countries beyond the need for assistance. Today, the private sector is playing an unprecedented role in creating and shaping opportunities that improve the lives of the people and communities USAID supports. USAID has, therefore, committed to a major cultural and operational transformation in the way development programs are conceived, designed, and delivered – emphasizing collaboration, co-designing, and co-financing with the private sector.

With this objective in mind, USAID has invested in a series of Enduring Results Studies (ERS) to collect and disseminate evidence on the drivers of sustainability and scale in USAID’s partnerships with the private sector. Enduring Results 3.0 is the third iteration of the study examining factors that contribute to the continuity of activities and outcomes, and the role that partners play in enabling enduring results.

This study explores what activities and/or outcomes from private sector partnerships endured two or more years after USAID’s formal funding ended and seeks to create a better understanding of the factors that support enduring results.
