The Council of International Development Companies (CIDC) meets monthly to create a dynamic and
sustainable advocacy platform for U.S. development companies to pursue thought leadership and highlevel dialogue with USAID, the Department of State, Millennium Challenge Corporation, PEPFAR, the
Development Finance Corporation, and other foreign assistance organizations. CIDC aims to educate
audiences on the vital role international development companies play in achieving accountable,
transparent and sustainable development results in support of U.S. national security, economic, and
humanitarian goals overseas.
