USAID Launches Vision To End Extreme Poverty

Devex: Here’s how we end extreme poverty
Alex Thier, assistance administrator for the Policy, Planning, and Learning Bureau at USAID

“… [T]his week, the United States Agency for International Development launched a Vision to End Extreme Poverty. … The last few decades have demonstrated that any country, on any continent, with the right mix of good leadership and good policies can lift its population out of poverty. … The U.N. Sustainable Development Summit is a chance for governments, companies, and civil society to demonstrate the will to end extreme poverty. Getting there will take a real commitment of resources, human capital, innovation, measurement, and above all, partnership. As big as the end goal seems, far more people have been lifted out of poverty than remain — and a solution is at hand” (9/25).
