As the Peterson Task Force pointed out, "there is not one U.S. foreign assistance program but several. They serve different purposes and should be weighed on their individual merits." We divided them into three categories:

I therefore proposed to create separate organizational arrangements for each of these categories. This would enable us to fix responsibility and measure achievement more clearly-in order to end the confusion in - our present approach which lumps all three purposes together in composite programs. The close relationships among these three types of assistance would of course remain important, and more effective coordination among them would be a key element in our new approach.

Our proposed new international security assistance program and our humanitarian aid efforts are discussed elsewhere in this report.

Let me explain the thinking behind our new programs for development assistance here.
