The Southern Africa Regional Mission serves Angola, Botswana, eSwatini, Lesotho, Namibia, Seychelles, and Zimbabwe.
 
USAID Southern Africa Regional supports an improved and resilient quality of life for Southern Africans.  We are  particularly concerned with improving regional decision-making and collective action to improve management of resources and promote renewable energy. USAID’s climate change programming, through strong collaboration, aims to help countries cooperate and plan together to better prepare for these scenarios in priority sectors by supporting the climate change priorities and needs of the region, including a better enabling environment for investment in clean energy. As negative climate impacts are likely to center on water issues, efforts focus on adaptive management strategies within priority river basins most vulnerable to climate change. We support the integration of climate, water supply and sanitation, and biodiversity resources to ensure adequate water resource planning and management is taking place.
