New QDDR Will Help U.S. Reach Goal Of Ending Extreme Poverty

“Just four years since the first [Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR)], these reforms have been the underpinning of a new model of development that harnesses the power of business and science to bend the curve of progress. But while the first QDDR laid a strong foundation, we know a lot of work remains to advance this progress and answer President Obama’s call … to join the world in ending extreme poverty over the next two decades. … The new QDDR will enable us to take advantage of this unique moment in history — one where new tools, technologies, and partnerships are redefining what’s possible,” USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah writes in the U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote” blog (4/22).
