USAID Regulatory Reform

As part of USAID's "FORWARD" strategy, the agency is introducing reforms with fewer or less stringent regulatory requirements for its implementing partners.


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has embarked on an ambitious reform effort, USAID FORWARD, to change the way the Agency does business—with new partnerships, an emphasis on innovation and a relentless focus on results. It gives USAID the opportunity to transform its agency and unleash its full potential to achieve high-impact development.
