USAID North Macedonia Strategic Framework

USAID North Macedonia’s strategic framework is designed to: (a) rationalize and present a comprehensive picture of the mission’s evolving portfolio; (b) outline a strategic approach based on a fundamental shift in the operating environment; and (c) establish the parameters for promoting self-reliance and, ultimately, reduced need for U.S. assistance to North Macedonia.

Four complementary and interrelated intermediate results (IRs) contribute to the overarching objective of helping North Macedonia become a prosperous, self-reliant, and inclusive democratic society.

IR 1: Increased Private Sector Growth

IR 2: Enhanced Participation by Informed Citizens

IR 3: Strengthened Good Governance

IR 4: Improved Social Cohesion

Cross-cutting issues include positive youth development, gender, domestic resource mobilization, and local, constituent-led development, all of which promote North Macedonia’s self-reliance. These issues will be addressed across all fours IRs. Additional near-term objectives include preventing and countering violent extremism and state-sponsored malign influence.
