WHAT IS THE JOURNEY TO SELF-RELIANCE?
USAID is reorienting its strategies, partnership models, and program practices to achieve greater developmentoutcomesandworktowardatimewhenforeignassistanceisnolongernecessary. It’s called the Journey to Self-Reliance. As partners on this journey, USAID is working with host country governments and our partners to achieve locally-sustained results, helping countries mobilize public and private revenues, strengthening local capacities, and accelerating enterprise-driven development. This approach fosters stable, resilient, and prosperous countries that are more self-reliant, and prioritizes enduring partnerships. It is an approach that is good for our partner countries worldwide, U.S. national security, and the American taxpayer.
