Agency for International Development
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is committed to increasing the sustainable impact of our development assistance programs through strategic alliances with the private sector. Such alliances enable the Agency to leverage private sector markets, expertise, interests, and assets in a manner that solves critical development problems and promotes effective market led development. They also enable the private sector to leverage USAIDís expertise, assets and working relationships in a manner that advances business success and fosters the broader economic growth and poverty reduction that is vital to sustaining such success. Through strategic and ongoing collaboration, the private sector and USAID are better able to increase the impact, reach, efficiency, and effectiveness of our respective investments in developing countries worldwide. This Global Development Alliance (GDA) Annual Program Statement (APS) is designed to catalyze, facilitate and support such collaboration.
