Since FY02, nearly $62 billion has been appropriated for relief and reconstruction in Afghanistan. A large portion of this assistance is committed to economic and social development efforts, which are seen as critical to counterinsurgency efforts and U.S. military stability operations. Funding for one component, the Commanders Emergency Response Program (CERP), currently equals about 5% of Afghanistan's GDP. This analysis of CERP looks at the scope and rationale for development-related activities carried out by the U.S. military. Acknowledging that tensions have arisen between the development community and the U.S. military in Afghanistan, the authors discuss the scope for improving the U.S. militarys capabilities in carrying out development-related activities in in-conflict zones. Specifically, they propose five policy changes: improving education and training for officers, reforming authorities and doctrine, understanding the dominant sectors of the economy, monitoring outcomes, and increasing awareness of unintended consequences. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
