USAID’S Assured Assistance: USAID’s Humanitarian Aid in Latin America and the Caribbean 2001- 2019

Resumen

La Agencia de los Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID) es el mayor donante de asistencia humanitaria para América Latina y el Caribe (ALC). Se realizó un análisis cuantitativo de los fondos de socorro en casos de desastre de USAID para ALC de 2001 a 2019 para determinar las tendencias y la efectividad de su contratación. Los resultados demuestran que USAID proporciona miles de millones de dólares en asistencia para aumentar el comercio exterior, pero los resultados del proyecto son ambiguos. Los Estados Unidos considera que los programas de asistencia a corto plazo son inversiones para el crecimiento a largo plazo en economías globalizadas. Se recomienda que las organizaciones con y sin fines de lucro de ALC sigan una estrategia similar y capitalicen la asistencia garantizada de USAID.
