Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

USAID has partnered with civil society and think tanks in Namibia to promote accountability and good governance.

Economic Growth

We have provided direct support to hundreds of small-medium entrepreneurs to build capacity in financial management, marketing, and business planning. Today, USAID is focused on improving regional trade facilitation in transit, customs, and other border areas.

Education

We began supporting education in Namibia in 1991. The programs have assisted the Ministry of Education to accelerate primary education reform in northern Namibia.

Environment

Our investments in community-based natural resource management have helped Namibia become a global leader in these practices and resulted in dramatic increases among key wildlife populations.

Global Health

Through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the United States has provided substantial support to Namibia since 2004 to respond to one of the world’s worst HIV epidemics and one of the world’s highest tuberculosis rates.

Working in Crisis and Conflict

During the devastating floods of 2011, USAID provided humanitarian aid to affected communities.
