This Project Appraisal Document (PAD) is the highest-level strategy document for USAID/Paraguay. USAID/Paraguay will continue to work to support Democracy, Rights and Governance activities in Paraguay with the primary goal of fighting corruption.

The PAD focuses primarily on building a culture of lawfulness to effectively tackle corruption by strengthening the rule of law, advancing a more formal economy, and improving civil society oversight of corruption. This PAD also includes as an integral part of the strategy, a complementary and cross-cutting Local Works activity to empower communities to assess their needs and lead their own development journey at the grassroots level.
