Washington Independent Looks At Response To Newly Nominated USAID Head

The Washington Independent examines the development community’s response to the nomination of Rajiv Shah for USAID administrator. According to the publication, “some USAID program managers and contractors … aren’t happy. In a series of [anonymous] emails … those within the agency who focus on its core mission of helping impoverished countries improve their governance and foster economic growth wondered whether Shah’s background makes him the best fit person to lead the troubled development agency.”

The publication examines the emails and also interviews others supportive of Shah’s nomination (Ackerman, 11/11).
