In addition, we have completed hundreds of short-term assignments, drawing upon our specialized experience in project design, monitoring and evaluation.
The company has had a pioneering role in supporting USAID initiatives to strengthen the rule of law and the legal foundations for sustainable economic growth. Checchi has completed assignments related to the modernization of legal frameworks and the reform of judicial systems in Latin America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The company is presently implementing major USAID-funded judicial and legal reform programs in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Moldova, El Salvador, Guatemala and Colombia.
