A year ago, Administrator Mark Green unveiled the Private Sector Engagement Policy. That philosophy has since been put into practice as a core tenet of the Agency’s work. What’s ahead in 2020? USAID plans even more engagement with companies―and more diverse partners as well through the New Partnerships Initiative. It’s our updated approach to empower countries on their journey to self-reliance.
Strengthening Our Capabilities for Relief and Response
The new episode is here! Two of USAID’s humanitarian experts speak with the Administrator about the Agency’s efforts in two recent crises: Hurricane Dorian and Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Halidou Beidou Rachidatou, equipped with her GPS tracker and motorcycle, joined teams of data collectors to map Niger’s unmapped roads. Their results make it easier to deliver life-saving medications, food, and school supplies to remote areas.
