ADMINISTRATOR GREEN: It's good to see all of you.  Thank you for the warm welcome, but also thank you for all of your hard work in helping to put on all of our work around the Summit of the Americas.  You know, as was mentioned: I'm a former ambassador and a former congressman. So, that means I've hosted official visits, I've lead official visits, I've been on official visits, and I know what goes on behind the scenes.  I also understand what a wheels up party looks like but I really do appreciate all of the hard work that you guys have put into, not just my visit, but all around the Summit of the Americas.

So, what I thought I would do, before I open it up for questions, is offer a few thoughts on the redesign.  I know that's something that many of you have heard about, and I'm sure is pressing on your minds. But to talk a little bit about that.  And then, again, open it up to questions; any topic you want. Everything is fair game, any topic at all.

So, to understand what it is that we're trying to do: I think the first thing to realize is that, even though Redesign, technically speaking, began with a presidential directive, I'll be honest with you.  I would have argued that we need to undertake this process anyway. And, really, it's because of one thing. We are the world's leading development and humanitarian assistance organization in the world. We're the best at what we do.

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.

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.

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.

On behalf of USAID, I am delighted to welcome you to this capacity assessment validation workshop on Cambodia’s “One Health” workforce training needs. This is the second gathering of key partners and stakeholders of the interdisciplinary One Health approach in Cambodia, with the financial support from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). This project provides a platform for government agencies, academic institutions, and other stakeholders to meet and work towards a common goal. That goal is to build a skillful health workforce in Cambodia that can effectively respond to the threats of infectious disease that may emerge among humans, domesticated animals, and wildlife.
