USAID releases policy framework for journey to self-reliance

Speaking before a global development audience in Washington, DC, the Administrator of United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Mark Green, launched the policy framework for his agency's new approach to development cooperation, the 'Journey to Self-Reliance'.  The shift in USAID's strategy seeks to "end the need for foreign assistance" through a new kind of engagement with partner countries.  

USAID has already released a number of other documents to assist in this transition, including metrics for measuring a country's progress toward self-reliance.
