Yesterday, Administrator Samantha Power met with Ken Ofori-Atta, Ghana’s Minister of Finance, to discuss a range of USAID’s development programs in the country and the urgent need to address rising food insecurity around the world. The Administrator and the Minister spoke about the urgent need to address food insecurity as Putin’s war in Ukraine causes prices to spike and more people to go hungry. Administrator Power outlined the recent launch of the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability and how USAID will work with Ghana and its regional neighbors to address the increasing pressures of violent extremist organizations.
