Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is the process by which USAID defines its objectives in a country or region to maximize the impact of the Agency’s development work. This process requires cooperation with partner governments, other donors and the interagency. USAID strategic planning advances U.S. foreign policy and development priorities and ensures the strategic use of resources.
