USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah Publishes Annual Letter

USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah on Tuesday published his 2013 annual letter. “Today, I am pleased to share with you our third annual letter about the work our Agency does around the world to help answer President Obama’s call,” he writes in the letter, available on the USAID webpage. “For this year’s letter, we’ve gathered a few examples that focus on the capacity of partnerships to maximize our impact and scale meaningful results. From partnering with small community banks in the Philippines to multinational agriculture companies in Tanzania, we are trying to change the way development works to achieve extraordinary goals,” Shah writes, adding, “We’re excited about our progress, but we also know we have far to go to make this new model of partnership a defining part of the way we work” (3/19).
