DEDICATION Just as this report was going to press, America lost one of its most distinguished public servants Richard C Holbrooke was a rare talent, and he represented the best of our nation’s civilian power He understood that we cannot project our leadership unless we also promote our values His first assignment as a Foreign Service officer in the early 1960s included a tour of duty in the Mekong Delta with the US Agency for International Development Later he oversaw the Peace Corps’s efforts in Morocco Out of government, he cofounded and led humanitarian organizations dedicated to saving lives And in his final assignment, as the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, he saw that the futures of the Afghan, Pakistani, and American people were inextricably connected As a diplomat, Ambassador Holbrooke was bold, tenacious, and creative—qualities that all of us at State and USAID aspire to He personified the concept of Ambassador as CEO He helped normalize our relations with China, helped Europe emerge from the Cold War, and was the main architect of the Dayton Accords, which ended the war in Bosnia 15 years ago As a patriot and public servant, he devoted his life to the idea that American power could be used for good in the world He left us far too soon, but his legacy will inspire Foreign Service personnel and development professionals for generations to come Although he spent much of his life in facetoface negotiations, Ambassador Holbrooke always insisted that talk ultimately lead to action In that spirit, we dedicate this report to his memory, and we rededicate ourselves to turning our ideas into action Leading Through Civilian Power The First Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review 2010 How can we do better? It’s a question that business owners across the country are asking themselv\ es every day They want to make sure they’re getting the most out of every dollar It’s an important exercise even in the best economic times In tough times, it’\ s critical Many government leaders ask themselves the same question When I was a Senator, I served on the Armed Services Committee, where I watched the Defense Department go through its impressive Quadrennial Defense Review I saw how the QDR provided a stra tegic plan for the department It forced hard decisions about priorities\ , and it made sure those priorities were reflected in the budget It was a cleareyed answer to the question: How can we do better? After I became Secretary of State, I started asking the same question I\ could see that we did many things well The State Department and USAID have phenomenal employees, from health wo\ rkers serving in remote villages to Foreign Service personnel posted at bustling embassie\ s to many other staff stationed across the United States But I quickly learned that we could do more to\ equip our people to do their best work, spend our resources efficiently, achieve our objectives effectively, and adapt to the demands of a changing world So last year, I announced a sweeping review of diplomacy and development, the core m\ issions of the State Department and USAID respectively We consulted hundreds of people throughout the US government and around the world This report, the inaugural Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR), is the result I have made the QDDR one of our highest priorities Just as every busine\ ss must get the most out of every dollar from its investors, State and USAID have to get the most ou\ t of every dollar from the American taxpayers; we also have to look ahead, planning for a changing \ world It’s ultimately about delivering results for the American people—protecting our interests and
