Eighteen Years and $132 Billion: Taking Stock of U.S. Reconstruction Efforts in Afghanistan

Event Co-sponsors

This event will provide an assessment of the latest challenges facing the $132 billion U.S. reconstruction effort in Afghanistan. John F. Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), recently returned from a visit to Kabul and will share his thoughts on what a potential peace settlement may mean for the future of the reconstruction mission. He will also discuss ongoing efforts to combat corruption in Afghanistan, and he will speak about SIGAR’S new assessment of Afghanistan’s anti-corruption activities. Additionally, he will highlight the conclusions reached to this point by SIGAR’s lessons learned program through its research and evaluations of 18 years of U.S. efforts in Afghanistan.
