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.
