YPFP's Africa Discussion Group recently held a discussion on Somalia’s political transition and the USAID Forward Implementation in the Horn of Africa, featuring Larry Meserve, USAID’s Acting Deputy Assistant Administrator for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA) and a former USAID East Africa Regional Director. Mr. Meserve, a long time development practitioner, has spent most of his career working with USAID for the African people. Joined by 20 young professionals in a discussion at the Atlantic Council, Mr. Meserve offered his input and expertise as YPFP members questioned him on a variety of topics. They discussed how USAID works to address key challenges and support capacity building initiatives in Somalia, while fostering good governance and promoting economic growth and recovery.
