Founded in 1984, this is one of the largest alliances of U.S.-based development and humanitarian organizations, they have over 190 affiliates helping in the developing world and provide linkages to each of them. Their activities foster closer cooperation between agencies of the U.S. Government, non-governmental organizations, and governments and organizations in the developing world.

Of particular note on their website is the category called International Development. It shows their 10 major divisions: (1) food security and agriculture; (2) livelihoods; (3) gender equality; (4) health; (5) governance; (6) aid effectiveness and evaluation; (7) youth development); (8) environmental sustainability); (9) adaptation to climate change; and (10) water and sanitation. Many stories are presented about what is being done regarding these subjects and specific places where the changes are occurring.
