USAID Administrator Shah Welcomes Results of New Global Agricultural Development Progress Report

April 26, 2012

We are pleased to see that U.S. Government efforts under Feed the Future, President Obama's global hunger and food security initiative, have been commended in this year's Chicago Council on Global Affairs' Progress Report on U.S. Leadership in Global Agricultural Development. The report, authored by some of the most respected experts in the food security field, reflects the Obama Administration's commitment to address global hunger and that of the broader community that acts together to address this challenge worldwide.

The overall message conveyed by the report is clear: Feed the Future is working. However, we know that our work is not yet done. We must continue working collaboratively across the U.S. Government and with our partners to end chronic food insecurity.
