More About This Speaker
Jeffrey Shahan, CPT, serves as adviser for USAID’s Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD) initiative. He has worked almost two decades for USAID in training and higher education, and institutional capacity development. Beginning in 2001, as an early HICD pioneer, he formulated and rolled-out HICD as a new USAID program initiative and technical framework. USAID established an official HICD Policy in 2009, based on best-practice implementation guidance initially written and issued by him. Today, he manages a cross-sector USAID program, called “HICDpro,” and supports other HICD initiatives worldwide. In April 2016, he was recognized by the ISPI president for his pioneering achievements in the establishment of USAID’s HICD framework and the program’s initiative, while presenting USAID with the prestigious Roger Kaufman Award given in recognition of the agency’s work on HICD leading to societal impact.
