The purpose of this Risk Appetite Statement (hereinafter “Statement”) is to provide U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) staff with broad-based guidance on the amount and type of risk the Agency is willing to accept – based on an evaluation of opportunities and threats at a corporate level, and in key risk categories – to achieve the Agency’s mission and objectives.
This Statement is a critical component in USAID’s overall effort to achieve effective Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), and the leadership of the Agency will review and update it annually as the ERM program matures and our needs evolve.
