It's great to be with all of you. Honored to be with these two champions. USAID is proudly the largest contributor to the World Food Program, and we were placed on the Board of Directors of the World Food Program. We try to bring our experience and expertise -- what we see on the ground. But we marry that with dynamic leadership, reform-oriented leadership, outcome-based leadership, and all the wonderful relationships that the World Food Program has, and so we're thrilled to be part of this great effort.

Ladies and gentlemen, today we face the largest displacement of people since World War II. There are 66 million displaced people in the world, asylum seekers, internally displaced, and refugees. That's like the entire country of the UK suddenly going homeless. Over 20 million people in Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen face life-threatening hunger. Now America, I'm proud to say, is at the forefront of fighting these humanitarian challenges. Two weeks ago at the United Nations General Assembly, we announced over one billion dollars in additional humanitarian assistance to help millions of people impacted by conflict and instability.

So, in early 2018, USAID will launch a new Humanitarian Assistance Grand Challenge.  It will be our 10th Grand Challenge.  At the core of each Grand Challenge is our belief that when government works with the private sector and with innovative and entrepreneurial leaders, there's no limit to what it is that we can do.  We can come up with better ideas, better solutions, better methods.  And I hope our Humanitarian Assistance Grand Challenge will help us better tackle some of the daunting challenges that we see right in front of us.

On-The-Record Briefing

As we help our neighbors in Mexico and the Caribbean, I want to make clear that America is and will remain the world’s leading humanitarian donor.  Whether it’s responding to an earthquake, drought, or conflict, America is committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with people in their hour of need.  It is who we are as Americans. While we respond to immediate crises, America is also providing lifesaving humanitarian assistance to those suffering as the result of famine, food insecurity, drought, and conflict, all of which is driving the greatest movement of people since World War II.  In the face of this unprecedented need, we are continuing to show leadership.
