Country chapters also include commentary on the donor's commitment to the MDGs, aid effectiveness, and policy coherence. The comprehensive statistical annex provides graphs and tables showing the evolution of aid flows.

USAID strategic objectives (economic growth, agriculture and trade; global health; democracy, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance) are seen as essential to sustainable poverty reduction and meeting the MDGs, although the MDG targets are not used operationally in the programming system of either USAID or the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). MCC considers economic growth to be of vital importance in the fight to achieve poverty reduction, whereas the United States on the whole considers private sector-led growth to be capital.
