United States donor profile now live on the Donor Tracker

Friday, September 15, 2017 - 15:27

When we launched the new Donor Tracker at the end of November 2016, the US elections had just happened. Given the changes in the US administration and the uncertainties around what the US’s new vision for global development might look like, we postponed the publication of the US profile in order to provide the latest information and analysis.

As with the Donor Tracker’s other 13 donor profiles, you will find in the US profile :

  • the ‘At a glance’ section first, summarizing the US’s ODA position relative to other donors, along with a quick take on its funding trends, expected strategic priorities, and key opportunities under the Trump administration
  • the ‘Big Six’ key questions, giving detailed data and in-depth analysis on development budgets, priorities, bilateral and multilateral spending, decision-making processes between the White House, Congress, the State Department, and USAID, and a mapping of all other major actors in the US development landscape
  • the ‘Outlook’ section, which summarizes expectations and forecasts about the direction and emphasis of US ODA
  • ‘Deep Dive’ sections on global health, agriculture, nutrition, global health research and development, and education.


The US profile is, of course, available on the new Donor Tracker app – which, in case you missed it, launched last month. Like any other app, it is available on Google Play and the App Store.
