U.S. AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (USAID)
USAID is the principal U.S. agency extending assistance to developing countries, and works in four major topical areas: 1, economic growth and agricultural development; 2, population, health, and nutrition; 3, environment; and 4, democracy and governance. USAID has responsibility for ensuring that U.S. development of assistance programs do not lead to the introduction of invasive species in other nations. It is well positioned to use its programs to support projects to eradicate and control invasive species where they are already established in developing countries, especially when food, water, and health security are at risk.
