How do we measure local ownership of development projects? Root Change and Keystone Accountability set out to answer this question as part of an action research grant from USAID Local Works. The Localization Learning System (LLS) was developed to help organizations track progress of their programs and interventions towards local ownership. The heart of the LLS is a web-based platform called Pando that collects social network analysis and qualitative feedback data to inform a set of localization metrics in real time. The LLS measures development activities across four dimensions: Leadership, Connectivity, Mutuality, and Financing. Network maps and regular feedback surveys help project actors and local partners visualize, learn from, and engage with the local systems where they work, identify interventions to test, and track progress across the four dimensions of local ownership.
