Professional Visits in DC: FAO, IFBRI and USAID

The Fellows arrived several days in advance of GLF for time to have professional site visits in Washing, DC. They visited the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) among others. Humphrey Fellow, Humberto Camacho (Bolivia) reflected on his time at USAID, saying,  “Christian Holmes, the Global Water Coordinator at USAID, shared his personal life experience within USAID as a source of motivation and inspiration towards us as Humphrey Fellows and future decision-makers and leader in this challenging world. Special focus was given to issues related with water scarcity around the globe and we were encouraged to never give up in finding innovative ways and new approaches to tackle those issues.”
