Conservation is development, and USAID achieves cross-cutting results through programming that protects priority land and seascapes and promotes the security, health, and prosperity of local communities.

USAID’s global conservation funding supports both natural systems and the people whose health and livelihoods depend on them. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, USAID worked in 57 countries around the world to conserve biodiversity, leverage private sector funds, fight conservation crime, and support sustainable fisheries, all of which help partner countries build resilience and shape their futures.

The Agency invested $269 million in fiscal year 2018 funds to conserve biodiversity. Approximately 60 percent of funds supported the 12 highest priority countries and regions identified in USAID’s Biodiversity Policy, including Indonesia, Tanzania, and the Central African Regional Program for the Environment.USAID also continued to fund efforts to combat wildlife crime, investing $65.8 million in law enforcement capacity building, demand reduction and international cooperation. USAID forestry programming totaled $189.5 million in approximately 40 countries, focused primarily on tropical forests.
