A DECADE OF DIFFERENCE
celebrating 10 years of President Clinton’s post-presidency
10 in 10: A Decade of Accomplishments
President Clinton’s desire to hold a meeting that focused on action rather than talk has transformed the way governments, NGOs, and businesses work together to solve pressing global issues. Since 2005, members of the Clinton Global Initiative have already improved nearly 400 million lives through more than 2,100 commitments valued at $69.2 billion in more than 180 countries.
Sustainable and Accessible Health Care
President Clinton has continued his dedication to helping people live longer, healthier lives by applying a new economic model to the AIDS epidemic. By lowering prices on lifesaving antiretrovirals, President Clinton has helped nearly 4 million people access the medicines they need to survive — nearly half of people on treatment worldwide.
Enabling Urban Entrepreneurs to Compete
Building on his administration’s success unleashing entrepreneurship, President Clinton has given urban entrepreneurs the tools to become successful business owners in underserved communities around the United States. Through his Foundation, more than 73,500 hours of pro bono consulting services worth more than $15 million have been provided to support entrepreneurs.
Leading the Fight Against Climate Change
President Clinton’s leadership has demonstrated that changing the way we consume and produce energy isn’t just good for the planet — it’s good for the economy. By working with dozens of cities to lower greenhouse gas emissions, measures such as building retrofits and clean energy transit are becoming standard practice in urban areas.
A Model to Address Poverty in Africa
President Clinton has demonstrated how improving agribusiness can lift incomes and grow economies in African communities in ways that are locally sustainable. These programs have focused on empowering smallholder farmers to increase their yields and access new markets, which has resulted in 4,300 farmers feeding 30,000 people in Rwanda and 4.5 million trees planted in Malawi and Rwanda among other benefits to local communities.
