        On September 18, 2012, the Jamestown Foundation hosted an event entitled “Understanding China's Role in Central Asia and Afghanistan.” The event featured Dr. Pan Guang, Vice Chairman of Shanghai Center for International Studies at Shanghai Academy and Dr. Richard Weitz, Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute, who provided additional remarks. Dr. Pan addressed China’s role in Central Asia and Afghanistan. He explained China’s interest in fighting terrorism and extremism in the region as well as China’s interests in containing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, promoting energy and economic development, and supporting Afghanistan in its post-war reconstruction. Like the United States, China is interested in tackling issues such as transnational crime, illegal immigration, environmental degradation, water resource shortage, and emerging public health issues. Beijing however, has different views of political reform in Central Asia, the alignment of energy pipelines in the region, and the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan. Dr. Pan also provided his insight on China’s role in Afghanistan and its implications for U.S.-China relations. Dr. Weitz was also a discussant and provided additional remarks on the security situation in Central Asia and Afghanistan, as well China’s role and interests there.

                • Inclusive Financing for Housing: Exploring Viable Business Models (June 4, 2014)

                  In 2009, USAID awarded three new Implementation Grant Programs (IGPs) to promote housing microfinance for poor households. Program grantees tested different models of financing and assisting housing improvements and micro-mortgages. The objective of these IGPs was to allow grantees to develop and implement viable business models and roll out products to a greater number of clients, and to document and share their learning with the program and the industry. Such approaches aim to support improved standards of living as well as asset creation for poor households, while being commercially viable for microfinance institutions. The three grantees were Opportunity International (Ghana), Habitat for Humanity (India), and the Aga Khan Agency for Microfinance (Afghanistan). SEEP has been facilitating a learning network to ensure high quality outcomes with respect to the learning processes of the grantees, along with the creation of highly relevant learning products for wide-scale dissemination. SEEP has provided direct learning support to the three IGP grantees to derive knowledge from their project implementation experiences. The IGP is now closed and the learning network is wrapping up its activities. Panelists from the three grantees, USAID, and SEEP gathered in Washington DC for an engaging day of knowledge exchange, sharing findings from their specific project implementation experiences with each other and deepening the conversation around inclusive financing for housing. This video records a final learning session held on June 4, 2014, at which the panelists continued to dialogue with each other, and were also able to report out their findings to an audience of interested industry stakeholders.
