Join us for Careers in Development with Franklin C. Moore. Mr. Moore will speak about his experience in fostering innovation in humanitarian and development assistance. Historically, humanitarian assistance and development assistance were intended to meet different needs within different populations. Increasingly it is recognized that often there is a need to implement both in the same geographical space. This fact and other changing realities is helping to bring innovation to both humanitarian and development assistance.

A career member of the Senior Executive Service, Franklin C. Moore is the Deputy Assistant Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Africa, which provided $6.4 billion in assistance to 49 African countries in 2011. Mr. Moore also served in this position from January 2008 to July 2010. Prior to joining USAID in 1998, Mr. Moore held positions in the areas of agriculture, environment and national resource management with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, with Africare resident in Zimbabwe; with Peace Corps and as a Lecturer at Virginia State University and the University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana. Mr. Moore has a bachelor’s degree in Economics with a minor in Art History from Yale University. He received a master’s degree in Agricultural Economics. Mr. Moore studied for a Ph.D. in Development Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Light refreshments will be available.
