In an effort to celebrate USAID Missions, Bureaus, and partners that are embracing cutting-edge technologies and novel approaches to data analysis, USAID’s Global Development Lab is sponsoring the Catalyst Awards - featuring the Digital Development Awards (the Digis).


The Digis recognize USAID projects and activities that embrace best practices in the application and utilization of digital technologies and data-driven approaches to achieve their development objectives.
