The USG Feed the Future initiative is set to expire in 2018. This leaves just over two years to achieve the dual targets of a 20% reduction in poverty and a 20% reduction in stunting (20/20 Vision) across the Zones of Influence in Ghana. Given this short time span, and the fact that most flagship projects are still in the early stages of their implementation, improved collaboration and the leveraging of skills and experiences will be critical in achieving the 20/20 vision.
USAID’s office of Economic Growth in Ghana has mandated Knowledge Management and Learning across the portfolio, namely FtF projects, to systematize the collective push. METSS has been tasked to provide technical support services and a coordinating role towards achieving the KM mandate and ultimately the 20/20 vision. If all goes well, this effort will contribute to a larger inventory of knowledge surrounding the impact that USAID is having globally. The aWhere platform and associated tools METSS will deploy are segments of the overall KM puzzle.
