Feed The Future Helping Countries Develop Agricultural Sectors

“Spearheaded by USAID, President Obama’s food security initiative – Feed the Future – is helping countries develop their own agricultural sectors so they can feed themselves,” USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah writes in a post on the agency’s “IMPACTblog.” He describes several projects underway in Kenya and Ethiopia aimed at improving agriculture, livestock and health. “These programs are already making a difference. That is why – even though this is the worst drought in 60 years – it is not the worst famine in 60 years,” he writes (8/10).
