I think you're absolutely right that we have to reconcile our economic objectives, looking out, particularly for people who are living at or beneath the poverty line, with these climate objectives. But bearing in mind that climate change is gonna destroy so many livelihoods, so the case for emissions reduction is an economic case. It is a case actually about justice as well and trying to protect as many livelihoods as we can.

I have with me the Administrator for USAID, Samantha Power, who is in India and has met with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, and she's also met senior Indian government officials, and engaged with the civil society. Maha Siddiqui speaking with NDTV.

So, I think these public-private partnerships, that's really the direction USAID has moved in in recent years, is to be more catalytic and coming in in a manner that increases, let's say, investor confidence. I, as the head of USAID, I'm also the vice chair of the Development Finance Corporation and some of the biggest investments that we are making in clean energy and that I think we can make as well in food security resilience will likely come through investment of that kind of capital, which is very different than grant financing and of a very different scale than grant financing from USAID.

MR. KESHAV GUPTA: Thank you so much, Administrtor Power, for these moving remarks. Very insightful indeed. I’m Keshav Gupta, founder of The Dais. We are an organization working on sustainable development goals, and especially empowering youth and finding their role in it. Besides that, I’m also currently the president of the American Center eSports club here in New Delhi. And I’m also working as the youth working group coordinator for the World House Project with Stanford University, which in fact, is working on lessons of Gandhi and Dr. King.

The importance that we place on this long-standing health partnership with the John F. Kennedy Hospital is indicated by the fact that several different United States Government agencies are involved.  They include USAID, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institute for Health (NIH), the Health Resource and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Department of State’s President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, known as PEPFAR.

The list of successful companies founded by graduates from the Indian Institute of Technology—both in America and here in India—seems endless. The technical breakthroughs discovered here, from mathematics to quantum mechanics to computer science, are frankly too numerous for me to mention and certainly way too complex for me to try to describe.

I am honored and excited to participate in today’s meeting organized by the Cambodia Malaria Elimination Project 2 together with National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), and CMEP 2 sub-grantees and CMEP 2 staff.

I've come to Somalia because the country and its people are facing an unprecedented food crisis that risks becoming a catastrophe. And Somalia has had its share of challenges when it comes to food security in the past, it has experienced many, many droughts, of course through its history. The people are used to these cycles. But what makes this different is really just how long it is extending, having four straight failed rainy seasons really is unprecedented.

Good afternoon everyone. My name is Larry Andre. I am the United States Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Somalia and it is my honor, my team and I, to host today, our Administrator for the United States Agency for International Development Samantha Power. She is a key adviser of President Biden. She is formerly the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. She sits on our National Security Council and has a rich experience in humanitarian issues especially, but also development issues worldwide.

Climate change, COVID, and Russia's invasion of Ukraine have strained global food supplies, and in countries where food scarcity was already an issue, these factors have been proven devastating. The United Nations estimates that 828 million people were affected by hunger in 2021, with children being particularly hard hit. Every 11 seconds, one child dies from acute malnutrition.
