International development and aid bodies

Many organizations around the world are engaged in international development and humanitarian aid, and work on many levels to promote sustainable development. Bilateral organizations are organizations in which one country provides aid to other countries, such as the Israeli National Security Agency, the aid agency of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or USAID, the American Agency for International Development. Multilateral organizations are organizations in which several countries cooperate in order to provide aid, such as the development agencies of the United Nations, or the World Bank (WB). International organizations are non-profit organizations that work in various fields to eradicate poverty and hunger, improve health and education, make infrastructure accessible, combat climate change and protect the environment, protect human rights, and more.
