ADMINISTRATOR GREEN: Good morning, everyone. Thank you, Dan, for that kind introduction and thanks to all of you for being here to help mark this very important occasion.
Natural disasters over the first semester of 2017
During the first semester of 2017, EM-DAT preliminary data shows that 149 disasters occurred in 73 countries. The impact of which resulted in 3,162 deaths, affected more than 80 million people and caused more than US$32.4 billion (A).

The Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliance (GDA) is a public-private partnership established by the US Agency for International Development with pediatric, obstetric, and midwifery professional associations, the private sector and civil society to improve the quality of facility-based maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services in focus countries.
WASHINGTON -- Today as leaders and experts from around the world gather in Des Moines, Iowa, for the annual World Food Prize, the U.S. Agency for International Development announced impressive progress toward achieving the goals of Feed the Future, the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative. The initiative's annual progress report notes that since the start of the initiative, poverty has dropped up to 36 percent in many areas where Feed the Future works and child stunting -- a measure of malnutrition -- has dropped by as much as 40 percent.
UNICEF: Without toilets, childhood is even riskier due to malnutrition
NEW YORK, 19 November 2015– Lack of access to toilets is endangering millions of the world’s poorest children, UNICEF said today, pointing to emerging evidence of links between inadequate sanitation and malnutrition.
Positive nutritional outcomes are dependent upon WASH interventions and nutrition actions.
Poor WASH conditions create an additional burden of undernutrition.
Many opportunities for co - programming WASH in nutrition programs exist and are described here
This evaluation was designed to review the goals and implementation of activities relating to public and private extension services supporting the achievement of USAID agriculture and food security program objectives. It assesses the relevance and efficacy of current activities; identifies ways to make future USAID support in this area more efficient and effective; and may be used in shaping future Feed the Future programs both at the Washington support level and in mission programs.
