The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Goal for its 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) is “A More Inclusive and Globally Competitive Economy for the Benefit of all Egyptians.”  This ambitious goal supports Egypt by focusing on three interconnected priorities for deep-rooted and transformational change.  The theory of change for this CDCS posits that when more Egyptians have the capacity and opportunity to contribute to the economy, the economy will grow.

USAID has identified three overarching DOs that will contribute to the achievement of the Goal: Effectiveness of Reforms of Key GOE Entities Strengthened;Enabling Conditions Promoting Social Equity Improved; and Inclusive Economic Development Accelerated.

During this five-year CDCS, USAID expects to strengthen and support the GOE to deepen key structural reforms as well as to increase the opportunities for inclusion of civil society, academia, the private sector, and citizens in the economy.
