IDEV Dev Roundtable - USAID's Vision for Ending Extreme

In three successive State of the Union addresses, President Obama has called on us to end extreme poverty by 2030, and the global community is coalescing around this goal as the marquee of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. As the lead USG development agency in this effort, USAID seeks to increase shared understanding of the nature of extreme poverty, where there has been success, and what role development actors can play in helping to achieve this goal. To this end, USAID is currently developing a Vision for Ending Extreme Poverty that will provide strategic direction for the Agency in addressing this priority.
