The Global Learning for Adaptive Management (GLAM) initiative, funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is a globally networked learning alliance that aims to actively identify, operationalise and promote rigorous evidence-based approaches to adaptive management.

Established to help catalyse the wider uptake of adaptive management principles and practices, the four-year initiative will provide tailored guidance and practical support to practitioners and policy-makers of adaptive management, generate quality evidence and learning about effective monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) for adaptive management (AM) (MEL4AM), and act as a catalyst, champion and convenor to change thinking and practice.

The GLAM initiative is implemented by a consortium, which is led by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), with the Institute of Development Studies of the University of Sussex (IDS), Oxfam, International Rescue Committee (IRC), Oxford Policy Management (OPM), Social Impact and ThoughtWorks.
