ASSESSING A COUNTRY’S PROGRESS TOWARD’S SELF-RELIANCE

WHAT IS SELF-RELIANCE?

USAID defines “self-reliance” as the capacity to plan, finance, and implement solutions to local development challenges, as well as the commitment to see these through effectively, inclusively, and with accountability. This definition grounds an approach to foreign assistance that reflects an approach to foreign assistance that is grounded in evidence and the values that underpin our work. USAID created the Country Roadmaps in 2018 as a visualization tool to assess objectively where a country sits on the development spectrum and their journey to self-reliance. Each year in early October, USAID releases updated Country Roadmaps for all low- and middle-income countries.
