It is an honor to be here this morning.  Today, the United States and Kenya join hands to reaffirm our joint commitment to the fight against climate change.  Today, we take action that will help us avert a worldwide climate catastrophe.  Today, we launch a joint three-year project to help Kenya achieve its goal of low-carbon, sustainable economic growth and development. 

In his 1963 address to the United Nations, U.S. President John F. Kennedy said:  “Never before has man had such capacity to control his own environment.”  That capacity, of course, can cut both ways.  What we do can alter the environment for good… or for ill.  And our actions will reverberate across time, having a profound impact on the state of the world in ten, twenty, and even one hundred years. 

Yes Youth Can Western is a youth program that improves the social and economic status of youth in Western Province, Kenya. The program empowers Kenyan youth to exhibit leadership in peace building, social service, and economic prosperity for holistic community development.

The Program for Biosafety Systems is a partnership between USAID and the Government of Kenya, managed by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), to support the development and use of biosafety systems to enhance agricultural innovation in Kenya. The program addresses biosafety through research, capacity development, and outreach and works with stakeholders to develop and implement biosafety systems that ultimately expand producer choice, inspire consumer confidence, facilitate trade, and promote agricultural research and development.

Yes Youth Can Nyanza helps Kenyans age 18 – 35 increase awareness and respect for youth-related interests in local and national policy dialogue.
