Welcome to USAID/Iraq!
Since 2003, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has been a major contributor to the U.S. Government's (USG) reconstruction efforts in Iraq. Collaborating with other USG agencies, USAID works closely with the Government of Iraq, provincial and local governments, international institutions such as the United Nations and World Bank, and a network of partners including non-governmental organizations, local community groups, and Iraqi citizens.
U. S. assistance to Iraq has changed substantially over the past years and will evolve in the years to come. From 2003 to 2006 USAID focused on restoring essential services such as health, education, water and electricity, improving economic opportunities, building the foundation of democracy and governance, and managing conflict.
In 2007, the focus moved to strengthening the effectiveness of government and civil society, expanding private sector opportunities, supporting focused stabilization activities, and providing humanitarian assistance and support for internally displaced persons. These types of activities continued until 2009 when USG assistance began shifting from reconstruction to building Iraq's capacity to reconstruct and govern itself effectively.
Our efforts moving forward will assist Iraq's building and sustaining a healthy economy, providing essential human services for Iraqis, and achieving full utilization of its natural resources. USAID supports the objectives of the Strategic Framework Agreement with the Government of Iraq.
