The Digital Ecosystem Fund (DEF) is flexible by design, enabling it to support Mission-proposed activities that reflect local circumstances and needs regardless of sector. Through two funding rounds to date, the DEF has supported 15 activities across a total of 14 Missions in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe and Eurasia. In September 2021, USAID selected nine Missions to receive funding. This round focused on Missions that have a Digital Development Advisor or have completed (or are completing) a Digital Ecosystem Country Assessment.
