August 19, 2012 Editor 0
An Open Source Development (OSD) model that connects problem-solvers with local challenges could be key to tackling poverty, promoting democracy and reducing child mortality, says Rajiv Shah, Administrator at the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
Shah argues that within a generation, preventable child death can end and education can improve; extreme poverty can be reduced by more than 60 per cent; and more democracies can flourish around the world. But making this happen will take more than setting goals.
