The United States is the largest single provider of Official Development Assistance, and we are committed to focusing these resources in the contexts where they are needed most. Since 2009, the U.S. has spent on average approximately 50 percent of its ODA on Least Developed Countries and non-LDC fragile and conflict-affected states.  We are equally committed to ensuring that the quality of our aid is high, and ensuring that the aid we provide is transparent, accountable, results-focused and locally owned.

In the Philippines, USAID has brought together these two priorities – access to water supply access and climate resilience. As we have worked to extend access to safe water and improved sanitation we have searched out the nexus between those important objectives and our quest to foster resilience in communities.

The U.S. continues to work in partnership with the Government of Haiti to assess the extent of damage in Haiti and to prioritize humanitarian cleanup needs.  The goal of the U.S. as a friend of Haiti and a partner looks beyond the day to day now, as we have for decades.

As you know, when a crisis hits or a conflict erupts, families get displaced.  Children’s lives are uprooted and put under stress.  The routines of daily life are disrupted. Children experience and witness violence and other traumatic events either in their home countries or en route to a safe haven.  Throughout all of this, children lose opportunities to learn, play and develop in a supportive and caring environment. This is the case no matter where they seek refuge.

So tonight, just as we did ten years ago, we have an opportunity in front of us. If we continue to work together, we can end the suffering of a billion people around the world. We can end preventable blindness, reduce disability and disfigurement, and ease chronic pain. We can build healthier, stronger communities and open lasting pathways out of poverty.

I hope that we seize this opportunity together.

Human trafficking is a global human rights challenge. It preys upon the vulnerable, breaks down rule of law, and corrupts global commerce. The U.S. Government, through USAID, the Department of State and other agencies, supports all four strategic pillars of counter-trafficking response: prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnership. In Cambodia, we have been working on these issues closely with the Government of Cambodia for more than a decade.

It has become evident that an important trend in economic and social development is taking place in countries around the world. The private sector is increasingly taking on what had previously been considered inherently governmental functions.

I am pleased to be here today at the start of this important initiative in the history of Kenya’s power sector. I wish to start off by thanking the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum for the great work they have done over the past couple of years in developing the country’s electricity sub-sector.

Let me make one thing very clear, the United States will continue to stand with the people of South Sudan. Our support for them will not waiver. I am pleased to announce today, in some ways but also disappointed, to announce that we we are committing an additional 133 million dollars in humanitarian assistance to support them. That brings us to 1.9 billion dollars.
