Interaction has just published a progress report on their perceptions of the state of foreign assistance, almost one year into the Obama administration.  Even if you don’t have time for the full report – take a look at the cover sheet which divides areas into ‘improved’ ‘stagnant’ and ‘deteriorated’ in terms of progress on the particular issue and allows you to then read in more detail on each section – from Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment to Sudan to NGO and military relations. The report points out that the biggest obstacle to significant progress being made is the fact that as yet, no administrator for USAID has been appointed.
