Objective 6: Integrate Action Plan within U.S. Government Departments and Agencies

U.S. Government assistance has helped millions of children, yet millions more are suffering due to poor governance, conflict, disaster, disease, violence, exploitation, abuse, neglect, and poverty. With the increasing number of children in need, tight funding, and a multiagency response, it is more important than ever to improve the coordination and coherence of the overall U.S. Government program and to maximize the impact on children. Collaborating for impact is consistent with priorities articulated through the President’s Global Development Policy. This plan complements key strategic priorities articulated through a number of policy directives, including:

  • The Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review
  • The National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security
  • The U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence Globally
  • USAID’s Education Strategy and its Counter Trafficking in Persons Policy
  • The State Department’s Youth Policy
  • The USAID Policy on Youth In Development
