USAID (United States Agency for International Development) is an agency for international development, which operates under the patronage of the U.S. Government. The organization started its work in 1961.

The main goal of USAID is to help its partners become self-sufficient and capable of managing their own development. Achievements in this process are possible by reducing the scale of conflicts, preventing the spread of pandemic diseases, and countering the factors of violence, instability, transnational crime, and other security threats.

The organization cooperates with governments, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and other stakeholders to achieve its goals.

USAID and Ukraine

The development cooperation strategy of USAID with Ukraine in 2019-2024 was approved with a focus on anti-corruption activities, countering the influence of Russian aggression, as well as promoting the country's economic development and energy independence.  Besides, USAID continues to support measures to strengthen democracy and good governance mechanisms, improve health systems, and mitigate the impact of the conflict in the east of Ukraine.

USAID Energy Security Project

The Energy Security Project has been implemented in Ukraine from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2023. Its main goal is to help Ukraine improve its energy security.

The main objective of the project is to help create and develop free market mechanisms in the energy sector.
