Innovation and Public/Private Partnerships

USAID is committed to improving the ways in which we execute our foreign assistance programs through broader collaboration with new partners. The Agency seeks, through the establishment of public-private alliances, where appropriate, to stimulate private-sector led development and increased private-sector investment in Afghanistan. USAID is particularly interested in innovative approaches that can have a significant impact on a major development challenge. Alliance partners are expected to bring significant new resources, ideas, technologies and/or partners to address priority development problems and challenges. Prospective alliance partners will be able to clearly articulate the value that they bring to a particular development challenge or USAID initiative, for example, by helping to increase the scale, efficiency, effectiveness and/or sustainability of an initiative. The innovations staff in the Office of Program and Policy Development is dedicated to bringing this initiative to fruition continuously in the transition areas.
