InterAction is pleased to release its Foreign Assistance Briefing Book. The document represents the U.S.-based international nonprofit community’s best thinking on a range of pressing foreign assistance challenges. Organized by issue area, it is intended to serve as a resource on important international development and humanitarian issues for the next administration and the 115th Congress. 

The document features 22 key areas with specific opportunities and recommendations highlighted. All of the information is drawn from InterAction's 180+ member organizations, a diverse group of both faith-based and secular organizations with decades of experience working on the ground internationally and with strong support from the American people.
