How will the US development cooperation look like under the next administration? USAID is still waiting for the transition team and no one knows who will make up Tramp’s landing team. Officials expected that the new administration would arrive last month, and that a bulk of the transition effort would be spent on in-person briefings with the incoming administration.  The two months between the election and inauguration are critical to a smooth transition between administrations. A large portion of USAID’s leadership — as with other agencies and departments — are political appointees, and when they resign sometime before inauguration day, so does their institutional knowledge. The lack of a Trump landing team at USAID has fed some speculation that the incoming president will not prioritize development programs — since he has not appeared to prioritize their transition so far.
