President Obama's recent policy directive on U.S. global development called for an increased "focus of resources, policy tools, and engagement in support of select countries."  But the question as to where this "enhanced engagement" might occur still remains.  In an attempt to divine potential countries for increased U.S. engagement, the Rethink team has created an interactive map that pinpoints the countries in which four development initiatives currently operate: Feed the Future, the Global Health Initiative, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  No country currently contains all four initiatives, but eight countries (interestingly all in sub-Saharan Africa) have three of the four initiatives operating within them.  Take a look at the new map and see for yourself where the different initiatives overlap.
