What is “inclusive development?” Also, why is it important to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and its work? Furthermore, how can USAID staff apply agency policies about including marginalized groups? Additionally, how can USAID integrate inclusive development into all programs? In response, this document offers suggestions for what USAID staff can do. Staff are not required to follow these suggestions. However, this document can help people understand what USAID policy says about marginalized groups. It also guides staff in how to make all programs inclusive.

This document has little information about deaf people. However, it defines people with disabilities as one of the marginalized groups USAID needs to include. It also lists deaf and deafblind people as examples of people with disabilities. If a USAID program in your country does not include deaf or deafblind people, then they might be violating USAID policy. Deaf rights advocates can use this document to help teach people about what USAID staff can do.
