USAID has strengthened its policy and strategy capacity by revitalizing several Agency-wide processes for formulating and implementing policies and strategies that are based on evidence.
Civilian-Military Cooperation Policy
USAID’s Office of Civilian-Military Cooperation, Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, is pleased to share the draft of the revised [PDF] USAID Civilian-Military Cooperation Policy for public comment. This revised policy updates the first Civilian-Military Cooperation Policy issued in July 2008, which established the foundation for cooperation between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Comments will be accepted from March 3-16, 2014 only by using this form questionnaire. We know your comments will enrich the thinking and better inform the policy as it is finalized.
The draft policy examines civilian-military cooperation beyond Iraq and Afghanistan and particularly studies current and future scenarios where USAID and DoD already do or will most likely interact. It also draws lessons learned and best practices from environments in which the two agencies have worked closely. The policy is organized around basic civilian-military guiding principles, and also details operational principles that will help guide USAID personnel in their work with the U.S. military.
Thank you for your comments on our forthcoming Vision for Action: Promoting and Supporting the Inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Individuals, which intends to re-affirm to staff, our partners, the international community, and beneficiaries that the LGBT community is a vital force in the work that we do and an integral part of our success. The comment period is now closed. We are reviewing the draft and large volume of feedback received.
USAID Policy Framework 2011-2015
The USAID Policy Framework 2011-2015 provides staff and partners globally with a clear sense of core development priorities and translates other far reaching documents into more detailed operational principles. The Framework also explains how USAID applies to these principles across the portfolio.
In addition, the Agency has developed in close partnership with our Missions, Bureaus and other partners a number of policies and strategies based on analysis, evidence and past experience. These documents clarify the Agency's corporate position in key areas and provide Agency-wide guidance to the field. These include:
- Democracy, Human Rights and Governance Strategy [PDF]
- Evaluation Policy [PDF]
- Education Strategy [PDF]
- The Development Response to Violent Extremism and Insurgency Policy [PDF]
- Global Climate Change and Development Strategy [PDF]
- Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy [PDF]
- Youth in Development Policy
- Resilience Policy [PDF]
- Water [PDF]
- Sustainable Service Delivery in an Increasingly Urbanized World [PDF]
