The Status Report: Afghanistan and Pakistan Civilian Engagement

Source: U.S. Department of State

From the press statement by Secretary Clinton:

The civilian surge in Afghanistan and Pakistan that President Obama launched in 2009 to accompany the military surge in Afghanistan has helped advance our goals of defeating al-Qaeda, reversing the Taliban's momentum in key areas, and bolstering the economy and civil society of both countries. As U.S. troops begin a phased drawdown in Afghanistan as part of the larger plan for transition, our civilian initiatives in both Afghanistan and Pakistan are assuming new importance.

This report provides a thorough review of our civilian efforts, identifies significant challenges and areas of progress, and outlines the way forward.
