USAID to Contribute $5 Million in Rakhine State

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has begun a program in Rakhine State to provide $5 million to support livelihoods and early recovery to communities affected by conflict, displacement, and extreme poverty. Over time, about 9,000 households, or roughly 45,ooo people, will see improved access to basic services, markets, infrastructure and economic opportunity.

Communities in Rakhine State themselves will lead the recovery effort, identifying their own needs and priorities. This is consistent with USAID’S operating principles around the world of non-discrimination, inclusivity, transparency, accountability and civic empowerment, informed and respectful of local conditions.
