The Future Of U.S. Foreign Aid

The Future Of U.S. Foreign Aid

USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah joins Kojo to talk about the agency's priorities and where it fits into a complex web of public and private organizations providing development aid abroad.

The United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, provides foreign assistance in a variety of forms. The agency is in the midst of efforts to modernize and rethink its mission and how it delivers aid. One new proposal would change the way U.S. food aid abroad is distributed for the first time since the Eisenhower administration. We talk to USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah about the agency's priorities and where it fits into a complex web of public and private organizations providing development aid abroad.
