Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom will travel to New York City April 3 to participate in the launch of U.S. Global Development Lab powered by USAID. She will join former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah in speaking at the event. The Lab and its 32 inaugural Cornerstone Partners - representing $30 billion in investments - will advance a science-and-technology based approach to development, creating a new global marketplace of innovations and taking them to scale to help end extreme poverty by 2030.

During her visit to New York City, Deputy Secretary Higginbottom also will meet with U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power to discuss the Post-2015 Development Agenda, the successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals that seeks to define common global development priorities for the next 15 years.
