Creating More Impact for U.S. Foreign Aid Dollars

During this C-Span interview, Rev. David Beckmann talks about the need to reform U.S. foreign aid. A more efficient foreign assistance system-with better coordination, better accountability, better clarity-will ensure that people get help faster and more effectively.

The process started with the submission of a new bill in Congress, HR 2139, the Initiating Foreign Assistance Reform Act of 2009. Beckmann is president of Bread for the World and co-chair of the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network.
