Testimony Before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Administrator Designate Dr. Rajiv Shah December 1, 2009
Date:12/1/2009

tance Act have we had such an opportunity to fundamentally re-imagine our nation's development strategy and strengthen the organization that leads it.

If confirmed, I look forward to providing leadership on behalf of USAID in the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review and the Presidential Study Directive on Global Development Policy. If confirmed, I pledge to work with this committee and consult with the broader development community and those it seeks to impact, to help craft and implement a development strategy that delivers on the President's and the Secretary's vision of USAID as the world's premiere development agency.

Restoring USAID's effectiveness will be my top priority if confirmed. A strong development agency is critical to animating and executing the President's bold development agenda. And empowering the dedicated men and women who have devoted their lives and careers to this agency and its mission must be part of strengthening the Agency

Change on this scale is not easy...or quick, but it is possible. Whether launching the National Institute for Food and Agriculture at USDA or helping to build the Alliance for a Green Revolution for Africa while at the Gates Foundation, I have seen people and ideas come together to shape a new future. This will require carefully defining success, listening to smart ideas wherever they may be, and maintaining a strong focus on the most critical tasks at hand.

And change will be necessary. In announcing the Food Security Initiative, President Obama proposed an approach to development that begins with the view that the purpose of our aid must be to create the conditions where it is no longer needed. To guide this approach, the President articulated five principles of effective development partnership. These principles will require significant changes in the way the Agency does business.

  • Instead of designing policy in Washington and dictating it
