Rebuilding Iraq is a U.S. national security priority. As part of this effort, Congress appropriated $79 billon in emergency supplemental funds for fiscal year 2003 for military operations and Iraq's reconstruction, including humanitarian relief, peacekeeping, and economic and political reform. We have issued reports on similar programs to rebuild countries in the former Yugoslavia, the former Soviet Union, and other locations (see attachment III for a listing of previous GAO reports). Based on this work, we have developed short papers to help congressional decision-makers think about and prioritize the range of issues related to rebuilding Iraq.

These papers cover the following topics: (1) Food Aid and Humanitarian Relief, (2) Peace Operations, (3) Economic Reform and Reconstruction, (4) Governance and Democracy Building, and (5) Weapons of Mass Destruction.
