Abstract:

Beginning, arguably, with the Marshall Plan following World War II, the United States has always been a leader in international development assistance. In many ways, U.S. development agencies resemble their counterparts in other countries—development assistance is part of larger network of bilateral relationships with other countries, funding requests must compete with requests from other sectors, and so forth. In other ways, U.S. development assistance stands apart. Because of U.S. Congressional reporting requirements and for philosophical reasons, the US has been reluctant to join other countries in providing countries with budgetary support. The US coordinates its work with host country governments, but generally organizes its activities in project as opposed to program mode, relying largely on US contractors. Unlike other donors, development funding and technical assistance is provided by multiple agencies with relatively little coordination. Still, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is the largest U.S. government development agency. In addition to its regular work, US development assistance has always included a security as well as humanitarian and development dimensions. In recent years, as development assistance is increasingly coordinated with diplomacy and defense, the military dimension has been heightened. This chapter provides an overview of US development assistance, with an eye toward distinguishing its unique character.
