The Mission's DRG portfolio strives to improve the quality of dialogue between GRA and those being governed. USAID/Angola is enhancing system reforms at various levels of government and boosting key social activities, including land/housing rights, advancing social dialogue, and legal counseling services at the community level. USAID/Angola is also fostering the abilities of young Angolan men and women political leaders to be peace-builders and agents of positive social change in their communities, empowering those communities affected and threatened by forced evictions and demolitions through capacity strengthening activities and legal assistance.
Under the DRG portfolio, USAID also supports public financial management reform to strengthen the Ministry of Finance's capacity to manage public financial resources. USAID also provides mentoring, training and supervision to the Ministry of Health for sustainable health financing at central and municipal levels to improve budgeting, execution, and oversight of public health resources. These partnerships allow the Angolan authorities to objectively understand and account for resource needs, which minimize reliance on international assistance, and provide Angola with a sense of ownership over its development agenda.
