USAID @ the UN General Assembly - Day Two
Our second day at UNGA included two addresses by President Obama, an event about Ensuring Resilient Livelihoods, and an event to commemorate the the Every Woman Every Child movement.
- This morning President Obama delivered remarks to the United Nations General Assembly.
- President Obama also spoke at Clinton Global Initiative on the subject of human trafficking. In February, USAID launched a new Counter-Trafficking in Persons Policy to reinvigorate and focus Agency efforts to combat trafficking (C-TIP) on concrete, measurable principles and objectives. We are also expanding investments in countries with global strategic importance and significant trafficking problems, and are strengthening C-TIP programming in conflict- and crisis-affected areas. Our programs draw upon innovation, technology and private-sector partnerships. Read a summary of our C-TIP Policy.
USAID, the Rockefeller Foundation and UN Foundation co-hosted the event Ensuring Resilient Livelihoods: A Global Effort to illustrate progress to date and the key role of coordinated, innovative and country-led plans that are driving forward the global resilience agenda.
Joining Administrator Shah at the event were Dr. Judith Rodin, Rockefeller Foundation, Kristalina Georgieva, EU Commissioner, Kathy Calvin, UN Foundation, and Ertharin Cousin, World Food Programme.
