I’m very honored and excited to take part in launching not one, but four USAID activities in cooperation with the Government of Ethiopia’s Health Sector Transformation Plan. These new awards will improve primary health care services in both agrarian and pastoral regions and will expand access to safe water and sanitation.

The Plan is fundamental to ensuring Cambodia is ready to access and effectively use climate financing. The Framework and Plan will help Cambodia address climate risks in critical sectors like agriculture, health, and water. They provide a much-needed road map for targeting resources towards the most important adaptation priorities in those sectors. The process of creating the Framework and Plan has strengthened the capacity of key institutions in Cambodia to address these issues.

On behalf of the U.S. Embassy and USAID Cambodia, I am pleased to be here to launch this Program Planning Workshop for the USAID WASH-FIN activity in Cambodia. WASH-FIN – or Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Finance – is a five-year global activity funded by USAID and implemented by Tetra Tech. In Cambodia, WASH-FIN will assist water and sanitation providers to access money to close the financing gaps in expanding piped water supply. We will work closely with WASH-FIN’s in-country team and core collaborators, including the Cambodian Water Supply Association, or CWA, to guide them towards the best private water providers.

At USAID, we are determined to break down the barriers that keep girls from learning and from leading. Today, I would like to talk about two of these specific barriers: first, the challenges that girls encounter in crisis situations, such as conflict and natural disasters; and second, child, early, and forced marriages.

Every dollar we spend, every program we manage, every tool we deploy needs to move us just a little bit closer to that day when African leaders, public sector, private sector, civil society, private business in particular, can take over in a self-reliant way leadership of the challenges that their nations face. And so, that really is what all of our work should be about.

At USAID, we believe that education serves as a driver for development and the elimination of extreme poverty. Education is transformational for individuals and societies. It also creates pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies.

The private sector plays a critical role in striving for the great potential that Afghanistan and its people have to offer.  In the most literal sense, this event is about connecting Afghan businesses with Indian investors.  With these connections comes an inherent responsibility.  Investment is a two way street.  If you – as a business person – see an opportunity to import goods or finance a start-up, naturally you are seeking a return on that investment.  What might not always be so evident, however, is that you are investing in the success of that society.  You are investing in the health of its workers. You are investing in the education of its children.  And you are investing in a nation poised to expand and share its wealth of goods, culture, and pride.

The new Feed the Future Cambodia Harvest II program will aim to accelerate growth in the commercial horticulture sector. We are focusing on this sector because Cambodia produces only one-third of the vegetables that its people consume at this time. The rest of the vegetables come from neighboring countries. Given that the agriculture industry employs over 70 percent of the population, we believe that Cambodia could be producing more healthy and nutritious vegetables to better feed its citizens. That is why we are working with the Cambodian government, businesses, universities here and abroad, and farmers to ensure that Cambodian agriculture can feed the Cambodia people.
