About the Digis
USAID has a long and rich tradition of transforming development through innovation. In an effort to celebrate USAID missions, bureaus, offices and partners that are embracing cutting-edge technologies and advanced data analysis to accelerate impact, USAID’s Global Development Lab is sponsoring the first-ever Digital Development Awards (Digis). As part of the Catalyst Awards, the Digis and Innovation to Action Awards are an important part of a broader culture of innovation at USAID that seeks to catalyze the next generation of breakthrough innovations and advance our mission of reducing poverty and strengthening democratic governance. The Digis recognize USAID projects and activities that embrace best practices in the application of digital technologies and data-driven approaches to achieve their development objectives.
