I think you're absolutely right that we have to reconcile our economic objectives, looking out, particularly for people who are living at or beneath the poverty line, with these climate objectives. But bearing in mind that climate change is gonna destroy so many livelihoods, so the case for emissions reduction is an economic case. It is a case actually about justice as well and trying to protect as many livelihoods as we can.

So, I think these public-private partnerships, that's really the direction USAID has moved in in recent years, is to be more catalytic and coming in in a manner that increases, let's say, investor confidence. I, as the head of USAID, I'm also the vice chair of the Development Finance Corporation and some of the biggest investments that we are making in clean energy and that I think we can make as well in food security resilience will likely come through investment of that kind of capital, which is very different than grant financing and of a very different scale than grant financing from USAID.
