USAID Raj Shah on the U.S. and aid transparency
The Pilot Aid Transparency Index 2011 was presented at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. on 19 January 2012, with guest speakers including Raj Shah, Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The event came just a month after Secretary Clinton’s announcement that the U.S. had joined the International Aid Transparency Initiative at the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan – so the event was well timed for a discussion of how these new commitments can be put into practice in the coming year.
Raj Shah delivered keynote remarks, followed by a panel discussion with Karin Christiansen, director of Publish What You Fund; Daniel Kaufmann, Brookings senior fellow; and George Ingram, co-chair of the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network and chair of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. Brookings Fellow Noam Unger provided introductory remarks and moderated the discussion.
