Horn of Africa: USAID's Steinberg on aid in a changing global landscape

"We also need to prioritize disaster risk reduction, including preparatory actions, creation of safety nets, and long-term mitigation," says Deputy Administrator Donald K. Steinberg in his statement to the InterAction Forum 2011 on the challenge of delivering effective development assistance in a changing global landscape.

"Developments in the Horn of Africa are instructive: our ability to anticipate this disaster through FEWS-Net and other mechanisms allowed us to pre-position food and other relief, initiate programs to build community resiliency to keep some 8 million Ethiopians off relief rolls, and focus on long-term food security and rural development through Feed the Future model."
