At USAID, we believe that education serves as a driver for development and poverty reduction. Education is transformational for individuals and societies. It can also create pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies.

It is because we believe so strongly in the importance of education that the U.S. government works closely with the Philippine government to expand access to inclusive, quality education for all – especially the most marginalized and vulnerable. Experience has shown that education not only raises individual incomes but can also advance inclusive economic growth for the country.

At USAID, we recognize that conserving biodiversity is fundamental to human well-being. It is also critical to our shared mission of helping build prosperous, stable and equitable societies. This approach solidifies our belief that “Conservation is development.”

USAID believes that stewardship of our natural resources is a critical to achieving equitable and sustainable development results. We actively pursue a path to development that enriches natural capital instead of depleting it.
