USAID leverages its funding through partnerships with the private sector, donors, academia, and host-country governments, among others. This formula brings stakeholders together early in the planning stages and yields more significant results as each institution brings different levels of expertise and experience to the table. USAID’s partnerships tackle challenges ranging from poor water supply and sanitation coverage, water system infrastructure rehabilitation, women’s health and well-being, and the development of evidence-based approaches to improve water resources management and food security. Below are some of USAID’s key partnerships.
