EXECUTIVE
SUMMARY
Introduction
During
the
past
five
years, the
Peace
Corps
and
the
Agency
for
International
Development
(AID)
have
carried
out
a
unique
program
of
interagency
cooperation.
This
program has
been
so
successful
that
the
PeaceCorps
Director
and
the
Administrator
of
AID
have
prepared
the
following
special
report
to
the
Congress.
Over
the
past
year,
AID
and
the
Peace
Corps
have
made
substantial
progress
in
working
together
at
headquarters
and
in
the
field.
There
are
1,300
Peace
Corps
Volunteers
serving
development
projects
also
supported
by
AID
throughout
the
world.
More
than
125
joint
projects,
ranging
in
size
from
large
investments
to
small-scale
village-level
projects,
are
being
carried
out
in
56
countries.
Approximately
40
new
programs
are
already
in
the
planning
stages
for
next
year.
In
June
1984,
an
AID/PeaceCorps
Coordinating
Committee
was
established
to
facilitate
cooperation
between
the
two
agencies.
Co-chaired
by
the
Peace
Corps
Director
and
the
AID
Administrator,
the
Committee
meets
quarterly
to
review
joint
programs
and
plan
future
cooperative
efforts
consistent
with
both
agencies'
goals.
The
Committee
has
stimulated increased
communication
and
cooperation
between
AID
Missions
and
Peace
Corps
offices
overseas.
Two
other
major
initiatives
were
undertaken
jointly
this
past
year
n
Initiative
for
Central
America
and
an
Africa
Food
Systemr
Initiative.
The
Central
America
Initiative
will
implement
the
recommendations
of
the
National
Bipartisan
Commissionon
Central
America
over
the
next
five years.
The
Africa
Food
Systems
Initiative
joins the
Peace
Corps
and
AID
in
a
program
that
seekslong-term
solutions
to the continent's
food problems
by
building
upon
the
Peace
Corps'
25
years
of
rural
development
experience
in
Africa,
and
AID'S
basic
involvement
in
the African
agricultural
sector.
In
addition
to
these
cooperative
efforts,
work
continues
on
interagency
agreements
in
five
sectoral
programs
renewable
energy,
forestry, oral
rehydration therapy,
combatting
childhood
communicable
diseases
and
nutrition.
The
Small
Projects
Assistance
Program
(SPA)
also
continues
to
flourish,
with
709
new
projects
sponsoredby
Peace Corps
Volunteers
funded
during
FY
1985.
The
SPA
program
has
been
expanded
to
include
health
projects
in
FY
1986.
