$3.5 Billion "Plan Uganda" Seeks to Cut Poverty in Half -- While Reducing 'Cattle Raiding,' Too
U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor ^ | 05/18/2011 | Steve Peacock

Cutting poverty by 50% in Uganda is one of the chief goals of the Obama Administration's 2011-2015 strategy for that African nation, which will receive $3.5 billion under the ambitious plan. Among other stated ambitions is a reduction in cattle-raiding and counter-cattle-raiding in one particularly conflict-prone region of the country.

The U.S. Agency for International Development today made available the foll0wing policy documents governing the program:

Description: The Country Development Cooperation Strategy 2011-2015 (CDCS) is USAID/Uganda’s approved country strategy and will guide USAID programming over the strategy period. The CDCS demonstrates how a number of important USAID policy initiatives will be implemented in Uganda, such as aid effectiveness principles, strengthened monitoring and evaluation, and procurement reform, and other initiatives under USAID Forward. This document should provide useful context to those reviewing upcoming solicitations and assistance opportunities.

Description: Feed the Future (FtF), the U.S. Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, is a $3.5 billion commitment by President Obama at the G8 Summit in L’Aquila, Italy to address two goals: 1) reducing poverty by 50% and 2) reducing under-nutrition by 50% that will in turn contribute to achieving the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 1. The Feed the Future Strategy for Uganda will guide programming for this initiative and should provide useful context to those reviewing upcoming solicitations and assistance opportunities.

Oh yeah, that’ll work.

The Swiss banks where the funding for this will end up are carefully studying whether building new branches and hiring extra staff will be necessary.

African countries have done a fine job of crapping in their own plates for years. They’ve all said for years that they don’t appreciate “help” from the western countries so it is past the time to take them up on it. Let them thrive or die on their own.

And that it will be used to prevent cattle-raiding and counter cattle-raiding in one particularly conflict torn region of Uganda. I can't think of a SINGLE better use of their money. Thank goodness we have the All Wise Obama to spend their money for them. I bet they wouldn't have ever thought of spending it in such a wise and thoughful manner.
