Helping Developing Nations

White House Developing Nations webpage:

"President George W. Bush has said that combating poverty is a moral imperative and has made it a U.S. foreign policy priority. To meet this challenge, the President has proposed a 'new compact for development' that increases accountability for rich and poor nations alike, linking greater contributions by developed nations to greater responsibility by developing nations."

This site provides the Bush Administration's rational for increasing development assistance, including that provided via multilateral organizations. Unfortunately, the materials don't appear to have dates attached, and there may be differences between these explicit policy statements, and the policies that will be implicit in budgets and programs.

Still, an interesting site.
