Implementation of "New Directions" in Development Assistance: Report to the Committee on International Relations on Implementation of Legislative Reforms in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1973.
Agency for International Development (Dept. of State), Washington, DC.
This report discusses the many policy and procedural issues of the Agency for International Development (AID) in implementing the reforms included in the congressional Foreign Assistance Act of 1973. The act concentrated aid efforts on food and nutrition improvement, population control, health improvement, education, and human resource development. It directed programs toward reaching the poor majority, required greater coordination with private and voluntary organizations, stressed the importance of integrating women in the effort, and emphasized the involvement of the poor as active participants in their own development. After a short introduction, chapter two discusses AID's basic approach to development, defines who will receive the aid and how they must participate, and describes various policy programs. Chapter three outlines the procedures and systems for fulfilling these programs. The appendices include various AID policy statements on international development. (DE)
