The USAID Promote Rolling Baseline and Endline is a longitudinal study to determine results of the Promoting Gender Equity in the National Priority Programs (Promote) using a unique fingerprint-based monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) system. The rolling baseline and endline survey collects detailed information on Promote direct beneficiaries. The information gathered enables USAID/Afghanistan to measure changes in the beneficiary population’s knowledge, attitudes, and practices relating to the status of women in Afghanistan.

USAID invests in key aspects of the Congolese economy—agriculture, minerals, and energy—to promote broad-based economic growth to reduce poverty and enhance food security.

USAID strengthens a foundation for durable peace in all geographies where USAID/DRC manages programming. We oversee conflict mitigation and social protection activities in Eastern Congo, CAR, and the Mbomou-Uele border region (southeastern CAR & northeastern DRC).

With significant growth in Vietnam’s economy, there is increased willingness to pay for a wide array of health-related goods and services, such as high-quality condoms, needles and syringes, HIV testing, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and anti-retroviral treatment (ART). As the Vietnamese Government works to develop a more sustainable response to the HIV epidemic, innovative approaches are needed to ensure sustained access to HIV-related commodities and services.

The Agriculture Development Credit Authority (DCA) is an 11-year loan portfolio guaranty (LPG) intended to mitigate the risks faced by five financial institutions (banks and microfinance institutions) in North Macedonia that provide loans for agriculture development and diversification of rural economies. The total loan portfolio that can be covered by this guarantee is $26 million. The Government of North Macedonia is co-financing this guarantee to increase the utilization of IPARD funding provided by the EU.

Solving structural and youth unemployment requires innovative and diverse solutions. USAID seeks to increase employability by providing innovative and affordable learning solutions for skills development, in order to help reduce youth unemployment, promote entrepreneurship, and potentially increase industrial productivity.

Government of the Russian Federation (GoRF) and Syrian Arab Republic Government (SARG) attacks on armed opposition group (AOG)-controlled areas of Aleppo, Idlib, and Hamah governorates escalated in July, resulting in numerous civilian deaths and injuries. GoRF and SARG airstrikes and shelling killed more than 500 civilians from April 29–August 8, according to the UN.

 

Violence in northwest Syria has also damaged and destroyed civilian and humanitarian infrastructure, including bakeries, mosques, schools, and water stations. Conflict has destroyed 17 entire villages in some locations of southern Idlib and northern Hamah, according to satellite imagery reviewed by the UN.

Libya has a substantial natural resource base, abundant human capital, and access to potentially lucrative trade routes, but lack of national cohesion and purpose impedes its movement along the path to self-reliance.  The ongoing military stalemate risks plunging Libya into a prolonged civil conflict. Without greater stability in the security environment, economy, and civic life, Libyans will fail to reap the benefits of a transition to democracy and face further obstacles to trade and investment.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is deeply committed to assisting the world's most vulnerable people, including persecuted religious minorities.
