United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Chief Strategy Officer Carla Koppell will visit the Philippines October 1-2, to reinforce the U.S. government’s commitment to help Typhoon Yolanda survivors build back better.

Ms. Koppell will visit Tacloban City on October 2 to inaugurate education and health facilities with local government officials, led by Mayor Alfred Romualdez. She will be accompanied by the new USAID Philippines Mission Director Susan Brems. This visit marks Dr. Brems’ first official trip outside Manila.

Ms. Koppell, Dr. Brems, and Mayor Romualdez will launch a newly constructed five-classroom school building in Panalaron Central School, a tuberculosis treatment center, and a birthing facility at the Diit Health Center. They will also visit a community where USAID’s U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, in partnership with Catholic Relief Services, constructed transitional shelters for 130 relocated households from 17 vulnerable, high-risk coastal barangays in Tacloban City.

As many of us gathered here are aware, both the U.S. and the Philippines are founding members of the Open Government Partnership (OGP). Broadly, the OGP is an international platform for more meaningful engagements and dialogues between the government and the people it serves. It is a global standard for promoting accountability, transparency, citizen engagement and use of technology to strengthen governance. We are all here because we believe in the power of transparency, accountability, participation, and inclusion in transforming the direction of development.
