Audit of USAID’s Response to the Global Food Crisis
Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2009
Audit Report Available: Yes
In response to recent increases in food prices, on April 14, 2008, President Bush directed the Secretary of Agriculture to provide an estimated $200 million in international emergency food aid through USAID, in addition to other FY 2008 funds allocated to the provision of food assistance. Also, on May 1, 2008, the President requested that Congress approve an additional $770 million in food aid, for a total of nearly $1 billion in additional funding in 2008.
The U.S. Government is committed to working with other donor countries and international organizations to leverage U.S. funding to combat global food insecurity and price increases. The Government plans to work with the World Food Program, international financial institutions, other Group of Eight members, and nongovernmental organizations.
This audit will (1) determine whether USAID’s response to the global food crisis has achieved intended results and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
