InterAction is pleased to release its second Foreign Assistance Briefing Book (FABB). The book outlines the U.S.-based international nonprofit community's views on foreign assistance challenges expected to be at the forefront of the 112th Congress and the remaining two years of the Obama administration's first term.
Sixteen key areas and sectors are featured, including climate change, food security and agriculture, health, urban poverty and U.S. government funding trends, with specific problems highlighted and suggested recommendations.
