How We Work

USAID Water Activities

USAID continues to develop new approaches to meet global water challenges. The Agency is actively engaged with partners in securing new sources of finance for WASH; establishing systems-based approaches to strengthen service delivery; and conducting rigorous monitoring, evaluation, and learning to ensure the sustainability of its investments.

Detailed information on USAID’s water partnerships, centrally managed programs, and Water and Development Initiative mechanisms can be found in this section, including scopes of activities, technical areas of expertise, and products ranging from reports to videos.
