Given the increasing international and global nature of many of the world`s natural science problems, USGS uses partnerships as a cornerstone to conduct a wide variety of science and information activities. Many of USGS`s international activities are conducted at the request of U.S. Government agencies such as the U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the National Science Foundation. USGS also works with agencies representing over 40 foreign governments and key international organizations such as the United Nations and the International Standards Organization.

These activities are all authorized by legislation and by DOS Circular 175 approved international agreements. In addition USGS`s international activities have also been supported by funding from donor organizations such as the World Bank and the Inter American Development Bank. Both domestic and foreign companies from the private sector are playing an increasing role in research and development, education and technical assistance provided by USGS world wide.
