Description
Moderated by Mark Lagon, Visiting Professor, Chair, International Relations and Security, MSFS Program.

In his State of the Union address on February 12, President Obama said, 'The United States will join with our allies to eradicate extreme poverty in the next two decades: by connecting more people to the global economy and empowering women; by giving our young and brightest minds new opportunities to serve and helping communities to feed, power, and educate themselves; by saving the world’s children from preventable deaths; and by realizing the promise of an AIDS-free generation.' To achieve this inspirational yet achievable goal, we must accelerate the pace of change in how we pursue sustainable development, drawing on the contributions of governments, civil society, the private sector and international organizations. At USAID, this translates into a new commitment to using our development assistance investment through partnerships; through the full integration of science/technology and innovation; through a 'whole of society' approach that draws on contributions of women, youth, people with disabilities, the LGBT community, indigenous populations, and other marginalized groups; and through local empowerment, ownership and the democratization of democracy.
