Preparing for a world altered by COVID-19: Over the Horizon Strategic Review
Analysis, Evaluation Reports
Over the Horizon Strategic Review
COVID-19 has had—and will continue to have—an extraordinary impact on the people, places, and partners to which USAID provides assistance. In light of this, the Agency must prepare for lasting changes to the development and humanitarian landscape in the medium to long-term. USAID must be proactive, understand what the current landscape and future scenarios in a world altered by COVID-19 look like, and adapt our ways of working accordingly to achieve our mission in a substantially changed global context. To prepare the Agency to meet the challenges and opportunities in a world altered by COVID-19, USAID launched the Over the Horizon Strategic Review.
What is the Over the Horizon Strategic Review?
The Over the Horizon Strategic Review is a time-bound strategic review grounded in a landscape analysis, a scenario planning exercise, and policy, program, and operational data and analysis. It will inform recommendations to the Acting Administrator for changes and improvements at USAID to achieve its goals in a new global context.
Over the Horizon is rooted in USAID’s approach embodied by the Journey to Self-Reliance and its broader Transformation efforts, and is not meant to replace or supersede them.
