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.

It's great to be with all of you. Honored to be with these two champions. USAID is proudly the largest contributor to the World Food Program, and we were placed on the Board of Directors of the World Food Program. We try to bring our experience and expertise -- what we see on the ground. But we marry that with dynamic leadership, reform-oriented leadership, outcome-based leadership, and all the wonderful relationships that the World Food Program has, and so we're thrilled to be part of this great effort.

Ladies and gentlemen, today we face the largest displacement of people since World War II. There are 66 million displaced people in the world, asylum seekers, internally displaced, and refugees. That's like the entire country of the UK suddenly going homeless. Over 20 million people in Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen face life-threatening hunger. Now America, I'm proud to say, is at the forefront of fighting these humanitarian challenges. Two weeks ago at the United Nations General Assembly, we announced over one billion dollars in additional humanitarian assistance to help millions of people impacted by conflict and instability.

So, in early 2018, USAID will launch a new Humanitarian Assistance Grand Challenge.  It will be our 10th Grand Challenge.  At the core of each Grand Challenge is our belief that when government works with the private sector and with innovative and entrepreneurial leaders, there's no limit to what it is that we can do.  We can come up with better ideas, better solutions, better methods.  And I hope our Humanitarian Assistance Grand Challenge will help us better tackle some of the daunting challenges that we see right in front of us.
