    Does Afghanistan's Reconstruction Have a Future?
    Hard Questions by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR)

    John F. Sopko, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction
    Dr. Robert D. Lamb, Director and Senior Fellow, Program on Crisis, Conflict, and Cooperation, CSIS

    Please join Special Inspector Sopko for a discussion about his recent visit to Afghanistan and SIGAR's Quarterly Report launch to Congress. The observations from his trip mirror the message of the report: the United States faces very tough questions about the future of its reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan. As the United States and allies prepare to transfer security and other responsibilities to the Afghan government, will civilian reconstruction efforts have the same security they need to continue? How will projects be monitored and progress measured? Above all, what are the objectives of civilian reconstruction and can the United States provide the support needed to achieve them?
