About Ecuador

USAID supports Ecuador’s development in areas such as education, health, environment, agriculture, micro-enterprise and others. Currently, USAID focuses on conservation of natural resources, particularly in biodiverse and high-carbon areas. USAID environmental programs have conserved hundreds of thousands of hectares of territory and helped tens of thousands of Ecuadorians increase their standard of living through better use of their natural resources.

Democracy programs broaden participation in democratic processes, support local governments, strengthen judicial capacity, and promote transparent and inclusive elections. Economic growth programs help to reduce poverty by promoting trade, investment and increased private-sector competitiveness. USAID also supports job and licit income opportunities, and works to improve basic services and infrastructure in Ecuador’s northern border region.
