LLS will work with varying levels of local governance to increase confidence in government in areas deemed strategic by the United States. These interventions will be informed by a rigorous research component in LLS.

Reporting and Supervision:

Reporting directly to the Chief of Party (COP), the Deputy Chief of Party will support the COP in the management of the program and provide technical leadership and oversight, as needed.
