Remarks by Acting Mission Director Ramona El Hamzaoui at the Workshop on Regional Cooperation for Modernization of Power Distribution in South Asia
January 22, 2020

The United States Government has made energy one of the critical priorities of our vision for a free, open, and secure Indo-Pacific region, which spans from the west coast of the U.S. to the east coast of Africa, or from California to Kilimanjaro.

USAID is advancing this vision through the Asia Enhancing Growth and Development through Energy, or the Asia EDGE initiative, by strengthening energy security, increasing energy diversification and trade, and expanding energy access across the Indo-Pacific region.

Like all of you, I am here today because anti-microbial resistance is one of the most significant global health threats of the 21st century. The discovery of antibiotics in the last century gave us an edge in the battle against infectious diseases.

But their widespread availability and indiscriminate use in humans, animals, and in the environment could take us back to a time when people routinely died from common bacterial infections, threatening global health, food security, and human development.

U.S. Embassy Event Fosters Collaboration for Cleaner Air and Better Health in India

The United States Embassy in New Delhi brought together a wide range of representatives from the U.S. Government and the Government of India, as well as development professionals, scientists, the private sector, and civil society to explore concrete steps to address air pollution and its health impacts.  With many of the world’s most polluted cities in India, the population’s exposure to air pollution is among the highest in the world and has led to a large increase in pollution-related deaths and disease; billions of dollars in lost economic productivity; and incalculable expenditures on health care.
