Infrastructure

Quality infrastructure development is a vital pathway to achieve USAID's development results around the world. Progress and prosperity depend on the buildings, transportation, energy, water, and information that USAID programs support. Infrastructure can be designed, built, operated, and maintained to produce lower emissions and less environmental degradation than business-as-usual. In fact, infrastructure can be built to offset the greenhouse gas emissions it produces. For this reason, USAID prioritizes climate-resilient and environmentally sustainable infrastructure that fortifies communities' and systems’ resilience in the face of increasing disasters and negative impacts of climate change–helping to achieve the goals of USAID's Climate Strategy.
