This is a screencast of the presentation given during the 2010 SEEP Annual Conference on the US government's Feed the Future Initiative. The session's presenters included Susan Bradley, a Senior Policy Advisor in USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA), and Jackie Claxton, a Trade and Private Sector Advisor at USAID. Both have worked extensively on the Feed the Future initiative. Jeanne Downing from the Microenterprise Development office at USAID was on hand to moderate. Feed the Future is the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative, and it represents a departure from the way USAID has promoted agriculture and food security in the past. The FtF framework is inclusive of agriculture productivity, private sector growth, nutrition, environmental sustainability, gender, and the chronically poor; and it takes a country-led approach. For microenterprise development practitioners, the initiative represents an opportunity to address key issues of microenterprise and poor households. The screencast includes both the slide presentation as well as the commentary provided by the speakers. A transcript of the audio recording is also available under Attachments in the screencast window.
