  •  a coupla caveats about expectations of USAID... (3+ / 0-)

    ...one being that USAID generally acts as a vehicle for development with a strong if not overwhelming flavor of development that favors American business interests, frequently over that of local policy interests.

    Another being that USAID's priorities generally reflect those priorities that are current within the current US administration - and AID's priorities are subject to influences and timing that often has little to do with local priorities.

    Cheers...
