Now, I know that among the world's political commentators, we have a number of pessimists these days, who see dark things. They seem to believe that progress is slowing down. They seem to believe that conflict and instability will dominate the world for some time to come, and some of them even suggest that democracy itself is in trouble. These same critics sometimes point to the number of young people today as a problem. There's a cause for concern.

After all, there are 1.8 billion young people in the world today. This is the largest youth population in history. They know that about 90 percent of young people live in developing countries. But you and I know, of course, that where the critics may see challenge, we see opportunity. With each motivated, active, and engaged young mind, we see the seeds of solution, innovation, and hope.

In both Iraq and Syria, our role in stabilization is very carefully defined. And the specific activities -- naturally, as they should -- vary with the setting. There's no one-size-fits-all approach, at least not one that would accomplish the goals that we all want to see and that the President wants to see. Most importantly, our success -- USAID's success -- depends upon the success of the State Department in mobilizing international resources in their role, but also, of course, DOD helping us to have access and security. Without their success, we can't possibly do what it is that we seek to do.

Thank you very much, Your Excellency Mr. Maurer, and to Your Excellency Ms. Lövin, and to the United Nations for hosting this important event.

As has been stated by several speakers today, Yemen is suffering, probably, the world's largest and most urgent humanitarian crisis. That is why today, the United States is announcing nearly $87 million in additional humanitarian assistance. This will help provide food and enable continued support for safe drinking water, shelter, protection, and medical care for Yemenis in need.

USAID remains committed to supporting Cambodia’s healthcare systems through capacity development and system strengthening, as they move toward achieving Universal Health Coverage goals. We will also continue to support the RGC in expanding social health protection coverage to include priority services such as maternal and child health, reproductive health, infectious diseases and nutrition.

On behalf of USAID Cambodia, I want to thank everyone for their participation over the past two years and also today to develop the Environment and Natural Resources Code. I want to congratulate the Royal Government of Cambodia, especially the Ministry of Environment and the National Council for Sustainable Development, and other ministries for their commitment and effort to develop the Code. This has been a long process that has incorporated the voices of many representatives of government, NGOs, and civil society to ensure that Cambodia’s development considers the environment and natural resources management.

As an example, we are very pleased that the USAID regional East Africa office has leveraged an additional $2.5 million for the Global Sustainable Water Partnership Activity that will support water security activities in the transboundary area across the Kenya and Tanzania border in the Mara River Basin.  I am happy to hear that the program is coordinating closely with Dr. Matano and the LVBC team.

Many hundreds of millions of dollars have been generously provided to alleviate suffering and fostering economic development. But they are being robbed of their full value by crisis, conflict, and poor governance. Last year alone, America's foreign assistance for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) exceeded $546 million. Our humanitarian contributions totaled more than $209 million. The agency that I'm privileged to lead, the United States Agency for International Development, contributed more than $130 million worth of food assistance and more than $136 million for health programs.

I am pleased to join you today to learn about this study which provides evidence about the cost-effectiveness of resilience. Special thanks to our partner, James Oduor and the National Drought Management Authority (NDMA), for co-hosting this event.  And thank you all for joining us.
