Over the next 18 months, the Initiative for Global Development intends to continue its research and advocacy to improve U.S. global development policies. Supported by a small policy staff, the Initiative's network of senior U.S. and African business leaders promotes three issues: (1) a U.S. global development policy that delivers broad-based economic growth in poor countries and incorporates U.S. and African business input; (2) country and regional agricultural development plans that focus on the needs of African farmers and businesses; and (3) clear bipartisan congressional support for a more effective global development policy. To pursue these goals, the Initiative mobilizes its Leadership Council of prominent CEOs to act as spokespersons on these issues with Congress, the administration, and business organizations.
