“...The United States will join with our allies to eradicate such extreme poverty in the next two decades...which is within our reach.” President Obama, 2013 State of the Union address

For the first time in history, we have the tools, technologies, and approaches to end extreme poverty within two decades. But if we're going to tackle this great challenge, we must share what we know, assess what we don't know, and work together to apply new and innovative approaches to help eradicate extreme poverty.

On September 18-19, 2014, the second Frontiers in Development Forum will engage a dynamic community of global thought leaders and development practitioners to address the question: How will we eradicate extreme poverty by 2030?

The Forum will bring together some of the brightest minds and boldest leaders on ending extreme poverty, and lay the groundwork for a broad coalition of partners committed to this goal. The Frontiers in Development Forum is a major development event involving global leaders and engaging participants over two days of discussions, high-profile talks, and interactive panels on critical development issues.

This year, Frontiers is structured to also include a dynamic Innovation Marketplace as well as numerous concurrent focus sessions to delve deeper into specific issue areas. The Innovation Marketplace will be open to a broader audience and it will feature dynamic exhibits and its own Innovation Stage to showcase new ideas for reaching and aiding the extreme poor and to engage participants in more intimate problem-solving settings.

The 2014 Frontiers in Development Forum was made possible by the generous financial support of:
The Rockefeller Foundation,The William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, and The New Venture Fund

USAID also wishes to thank the following partners for their support:
Oxfam, The Global Economy and Development program at Brookings, World Resources Institute and Devex‪
