USAID's Digital Strategy

USAID’s Digital Strategy DRAFT for Public Comment Coming Soon

USAID is developing its first ever Digital Strategy charting an Agency-wide vision for development and humanitarian assistance in the world’s rapidly evolving digital landscape. It will equip staff, empower partners, improve internal processes, and shape effective programming, making the most of U.S. taxpayer dollars, ensuring effective programming that represents American values, and highlighting the United States leadership on digital development.

The Digital Strategy seeks to advance the growth of self-reliant countries through efficient, effective, and responsible digital initiatives that enhance U.S. national security and economic prosperity, consistent with American values of respect for individual rights, open and competitive markets, freedom of expression, and the promotion of democratic norms and practices. The Digital Strategy also paves a path for USAID to partner with the private sector on long-term sustainability and investment in an open, inter-operable, reliable, and secure internet, along with underlying policies that protect consumers and promote the free flow of information, products and services.

The USAID Digital Strategy will be open for public comment later this fall. If you would like to be notified when the public comment period starts, please sign up to receive our monthly Digital Development Newsletter.

Any questions may be directed to digitaldevelopment@usaid.gov.
