Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid Public Meeting May 25, 2005

By International Development Agency


Description
Excerpt: In FY2002, the year that included September 11, USAID?s budget in Democracy and Governance was $670 million. In FY2004 the total budget was close to $1.2 billion, but nearly half of that amount was spent in Iraq and Afghanistan. The total remaining amount comes to $685 million, only a $15 million increase. The problem is that earmarks on Agency spending have grown so extensive that they are taking money from other accounts. These earmarks are for education, microfinance, and biodiversity? all worthy uses. But in Africa, for instance, the most important priorities are Rural Development, Infrastructure Development, and Democracy and Governance. These are not earmarked accounts, and therefore they are not growing. When you in the audience go to Congress to argue for the preservation of these earmarks, understand that there is a profound imbalance in the Agency?s budget for those areas where they don?t exist.
