Good morning.  I am honored to be with you today to celebrate the commendable progress that has been made to protect and conserve the Mara River Basin.

Famous all over the world for its beautiful landscapes and rich biodiversity, the Mara-Serengeti attracts millions of tourists each year between July and October to watch the spectacular wildebeest migration.

Not only does the Mara River need to be protected because of its one-of-a-kind migration phenomenon and natural beauty, but also because the Mara River is critical for people’s livelihoods in Kenya, Tanzania and throughout the entire East African region.

In fact, more than one million people depend on the resources of the Mara River Basin for their livelihoods, including small and large scale farmers, livestock and fisheries production, pastoralists and people living in towns and settlements across the region.

Although the Mara River is a critical resource for East Africa’s economic and social development, its very survival is threatened by unsustainable development patterns and climate change. These threats can only be overcome by working together at both national and regional levels. 

But know you know that. The Memorandum of Understanding that was signed between Kenya and Tanzania during the 4th Mara Day held in 2014 in Butiama, Tanzania, is the only document of its kind in the region.

The EPIC social business incubator is one way our Development Innovations project helps Cambodians solve problems with information and communication technologies. EPIC has helped support eleven teams of entrepreneurs to create and grow startups that solve some pressing social problems. They work to address problems like the need for English language teaching resources, the lack of expertise about food safety concerns, and the need for safe housing options for Cambodians who come to Phnom Penh to study or find work. Congratulations to all the teams, and to Impact Hub and Development Innovations, for all the hard work involved with running this program and getting us to today's EPIC Showcase.

The United States government cares deeply about countering trafficking in persons because it affects not just individuals and their families, but also communities and entire countries, regardless of their location or level of economic development. We know from experience around the world that strong coordination among government, civil society, and the private sector is critical to stop human trafficking. The Royal Government of Cambodia shares our concern and the National Committee for Counter Trafficking has provided the leadership and coordination needed to make real progress against human trafficking.

I believe the purpose of foreign assistance should be ending its need to exist.  Each of our programs should look forward to the day when we can end it.  And around the world we should measure our work by how far each investment moves us closer to that day.  Now, I'm under no illusions.  In some places, that day is quite a ways off.  But we could help our partners by prioritizing programs that show measurable impact, incentivize reform, diversify our partner base, foster local capacity-building, and mobilize their own domestic resources.  In the area of humanitarian assistance, we will always stand with people when disaster strikes or crisis emerges.

CE SAIN’s goal is to ‘transform agri-food systems through agricultural research, education and innovation.’  This transformation shifts food production from soil- and labor-intense methods that degrade the environment to those that actually enhance the environment. This is known as sustainable intensification. Sustainable intensification improves resource efficiency and productivity without harming our land or water. This goal and all of USAID’s agricultural activities align with and support the objectives laid out in the Agricultural Strategic Development Plan of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forest and Fisheries.

Human trafficking is a global human rights challenge. It preys upon the vulnerable, breaks down the rule of law, and corrupts global commerce. No challenge may be greater than the transnational crime of human trafficking that impacts millions of people worldwide each year - including people from Cambodia. The United States government cares deeply about countering trafficking in persons because it affects not just individuals and their families, but also communities and entire countries, regardless of where they are or what their level of economic development. Experience shows us that strong global coordination among government, civil society, and the private sector is critical to stop human trafficking. The Royal Government of Cambodia shares our concern and the National Committee for Counter Trafficking has provided the leadership and coordination needed to make real progress against human trafficking.

I have had the privilege of experiencing the awesome beauty of Prey Lang and meeting many of the people who have dedicated their lives to protecting that incredible landscape since I arrived last year. I was touched by their stories and humbled by the challenges they face everyday.  This is one of the many reasons I am pleased to be here today as we recognize communities who live in and near forests as well as the rangers for the incredible responsibility they shoulder.
