Blog Post Discusses Concerns Over USAID Administrator Mark Green’s Endorsement Of Transition Strategy

Lugar Center Blog: Getting Comfortable with the “T-word” at USAID, a Focus on Transitioning Countries
James Kunder, MFAN executive committee member and affiliated expert with The Lugar Center, discusses concerns over USAID Administrator Mark Green’s “endorsement of ‘strategic transitions,’ in which USAID works its way out of job and, in one form or another, ends U.S. foreign aid to the transitioning country.” While many in the international development community are concerned about this plan, Kunder writes, “[P]ersonally, I think Mark Green is on to something. I encourage the international development community to give his ideas a balanced look, and to dive in to make ‘strategic transitions’ as developmentally effective as possible” (10/10).
