"In May, President Obama announced the implementation of the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition that emerged out of the G8 summit at Camp David," Zach Silberman, a policy associate with the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, writes in the USGLC's blog, adding, "As part of the alliance, the United States launched workshops in Africa last week that are geared towards implementing the initiative's goal of boosting public-private partnerships through cooperation between the G8 nations, African countries, and the private sector." Silberman writes, "According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, kick-off workshops to support implementation of actions outlined in the alliance's Cooperation Frameworks took place in Ethiopia on August 21, Ghana on August 29, and Tanzania on September 6-7" (9/10).
