Lebanon Country Development Cooperationa Strategy 2021-2026

Speeches Shim

The goal of USAID/Lebanon’s 2021-2026 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) is a stable, resilient Lebanon at peace with its neighbors, building on economic, institutional, and community-based opportunities. Considering Lebanon’s country context, the USAID strategy is designed to increase economic resilience including competitiveness, livelihoods and service delivery, vis-a-vis private sector and municipal engagement. The goal takes into account the presence of a large refugee population, a fluid country context; complements the priorities of the Government of Lebanon (GOL), as well as other donors’ efforts in economic growth, education, water, and humanitarian assistance. The goal also aligns with Lebanon’s 2021 Integrated Country Strategy (ICS). Throughout the implementation of the CDCS, the Development Objectives (DOs) and the learning plan will address relevant cross-cutting themes of gender, youth, anti-corruption, and transparency. At the conclusion of the Strategy, the Mission expects to achieve a series of meaningful results, including a greater number of private sector organizations that have retained or boosted their revenues and improved their resiliency to economic downturns; effective education delivery; a majority of USAID scholarship recipients that have obtained meaningful employment; and an increase in municipal governments that have the capacity to deliver services effectively, in coordination with civil society.
