The NCI will focus on filling key shortfalls, encouraging pooling and specialization, introducing the NATO Response force (NRF) and reforming NATO's Command Structure. U.S. export controls with key European allies streamlined to promote transatlantic defense industrial integration. [On Target]
  3. NATO-Russia Council and 2002 work plan established in May 2002. [On Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator and title modified from original 2002 Performance Plan language to better reflect progress toward the annual performance goal
  • Data reliability: The data are a matter of public record and are reliable.

Result 1

  • Data sources/availability: Data are the result of the commitments made by Allied Heads of State and Government at the Prague Summit in November 2002. Berlin Plus data are the result of a NATO meeting in Berlin in 1996, and the NATO Summit in Washington in 1999.
  • Partners: Department, OSD and JCS prepare joint guidance for USNATO. USNATO itself is a joint State/DOD mission and is a model of interagency cooperation.

Result 2

  • Data sources/availability: Data collection on the results of the NCI will continue as Allies implement their commitments in principle. We have seen encouraging progress in the development of European consortia to fill critical shortfalls through polling and specialization.
  • Partners: Assessment of results will be tracked in close coordination with OSD and Joint Staff.

Result 3

  • Data sources/availability: Data are the result of the 2002 NATO-Russia Council work plan and the 2002 NATO-Russia Ministerials in Rome (May) and Prague (November).
  • Partners: Department, OSD, and JCS prepare joint guidance for USNATO. USNATO itself is a joint State/DOD mission and is a model of interagency cooperation.

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator discontinued during FY2002 in favor of tracking status of U.S.-Republic of Korea relations to better reflect recent regional stability improvements in East Asia.

Result

  • Data sources/availability: Adoption of the Basic Plan was a formal, public act of the Japanese government and local Japanese authorities.
  • Data reliability: As adoption of the Basic Plan was a public act of the Japanese government and local authorities, it is an official act and therefore entirely reliable as a source of data.
  • Partners: The Department coordinated closely with the Department of Defense in the work that led to the successful adoption of the Basic Plan by the Japanese government and local authorities.

Performance Indicator: Chinese Cooperation on Regional Security in Cross Strait Relations and in Engaging North Korea

1999 BASELINE

2000 RESULTS

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Dialogue was initiated and subsequently suspended.

Cooperation on regional security selective and episodic.

Progress slow; continued concern with China's arms buildup across the Taiwan Strait.

China cooperated in encouraging North Korean openness and dialogue.

  1. China continued to urge Pakistan and India to avoid conflict and reduce tensions. China encouraged North Korea to reform, and limited discussions on other regional issues including the South China Sea. China's public statements at APEC were helpful in maintaining a nuclear weapons free Korean Peninsula. [On Target]
  2. There is a continuing impasse on Cross-Strait dialogue [Slightly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator modified in subsequent plans to better reflect progress toward the performance goal through reduced geographic restrictions: Chinese Cooperation on Regional Stability.

Result 1

  • Data sources/availability: China's cooperation on these issues is a matter of public record.

Result 2

  • Data sources/availability: The lack of progress on Cross-Strait dialogue is a matter of public record.
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: Will continue to encourage China to use dialogue to resolve Cross-Strait issues with Taiwan.

Performance Indicator: Implementation of Adapted Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty

1999 BASELINE

2000 RESULTS

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

CFE adaptation negotiations continued.

CFE adaptation negotiations successfully completed.

Circumstances not ready for Entry into Force (EIF).

Successful Review Conference advanced U.S. and NATO interests.

Russia made serious moves toward compliance increasing the possibility of NATO's ratification of CFE Treaty in 2002.

Russia has fulfilled its Istanbul commitment on the flank issue, has reduced its flank equipment to adapted Treaty levels and has discharged its Istanbul commitments relating to CFE equipment in Georgia and Moldova. However, Russia must reach agreement with Georgia on remaining issues regarding the Gudauta base and its future use and the duration of Russian presence at Batumi and Alkhalkalai. Russia also needs to continue the destruction/removal of munitions and small arms in Moldova. Therefore, conditions for U.S. ratification of adapted CFE Treaty have not yet been met. [Slightly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Result

  • Data sources/availability: Data regarding Russia's flank levels comes from Russia, inspection reports, and U.S. and NATO national sources.
  • Data reliability: The data are complete and reliable concerning concrete actions, but not on intentions.
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: Russia's failure to fulfill all its commitments regarding Georgia and Moldova delays entry into force of the adapted CFE Treaty, which updates the current CFE Treaty for post-Cold War application. While the current CFE Treaty is adequate for ensuring security and confidence through data exchanges and inspections, the long delay in getting the adapted Treaty in place undermines confidence and stability. Russia's failure to fulfill all these commitments also raises questions about Russia's intentions in this region. The U.S. and many allies have contributed toward an OSCE voluntary fund for assisting Russia, Georgia and Moldova to finish the tasks remaining. NATO states will continue to impress upon Russia the importance of completing all Istanbul commitments.
  • Partners: The Department works closely with the Department of Defense, NSC and the Intelligence Community in developing USG positions, and coordinates with NATO.

Organization of African Unity (OAU) participation in Congo peacekeeping.

Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) participation in peacekeeping in Sierra Leone.

Cooperation on regional security selective and episodic.

OAU continued to support peacekeeping efforts in Congo and Ethiopia-Eritrea.

Training of battalions for UN Mission in Sierra Leone.

South Africa, a member of the African Union (AU), provided leadership and facilitation for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) peace process and the AU provided personnel to the Joint Military Commission responsible for working with the UN Observation Mission in the DRC. The war in Sierra Leone is effectively over. Program activities like the West Africa Stabilization Program and the African Contingency Operations Training and Assistance program (formerly the African Crisis Response Initiative) have ensured that West African member states of ECOWAS are more able to meet the demands of peacekeeping operations. [Above Target]

Performance Indicator: Reduction of Tension in South Asia

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Continued military action by both sides along the Line of Control (LOC). Existing CBM's ignored.

Pakistan providing material assistance and training to groups fighting in Kashmir.

No good channels of communication.

Suspension of Indian offensive security force operations Nov-May: continued militant infiltration and attacks.

Agra Summit broke down over communiqu� wording.

  1. Pakistan provided assurances in June that support for infiltration across the Line of Control (LOC) would cease permanently. Infiltration decreases, although indications remain that it is continuing. India begins to demobilize forces following completion of Kashmir state elections in October. Pakistan follows suit. Nuclear test moratoria continue; however, ballistic missile and nuclear programs continue unrestrained. [Slightly Below Target]
  2. Given Indian and Pakistani hostility to SATF, bilateral approaches by the U.S. and other concerned countries have been more productive South Asian Task Force (SATF) ceased in spring 2002 based on a judgement that SATF did not advance shared goals. [Significantly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator retitled in subsequent plans as: Status of relations between Pakistan and India on Kashmir in Regional Stability Performance Goal 4.

Result 1

  • Data sources/availability: Data on Government of Pakistan assurances comes from public statements. Other information comes from Governments of India and Pakistan, and USG sources and international press reports. Lack of full access to Line of Control prevents first-hand USG accounts of activities in and around Kashmir.
  • Data reliability: Information regarding government commitment is part of the public record, and is therefore reliable. However, reported levels of infiltration are inherently difficult to verify due to lack of access to the LOC, as well as misinformation on both sides.
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: Continuing infiltration and high levels of election-related violence in September prevent implementation of CBMs; and require continued U.S. and international pressure on the Government of Pakistan to help control violence. Potential for nuclear or ballistic weapons exchange remains unacceptably high, requiring continued high-level diplomatic engagement.
  • Partners: Through the South Asia PCC, the Department coordinates closely with DOD, NSC and the intelligence community.

Result 2

  • Data reliability: The fact that SATF meetings ceased after spring 2002 is reliable.

Performance Indicator: Implementation of OSCE Summit Initiatives

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Heightened Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) role in the Balkans.

"Assistance Group" returned to Chechnya as interlocutor on humanitarian issues.

U.S. portion of REACT fully operational.

  1. Elections led to coalition government, functioning, multi-ethnic Assembly. [On Target]
  2. "Assistance Group" developed closer, stronger working relationships with local, Federal officials and NGOs and provided indispensable reporting on local developments to OSCE and USG. [On Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator discontinued in subsequent plans in favor of tracking transatlantic relationships, which more fully reflect U.S. efforts in the region.

Result 1

  • Data sources/availability: Department and public sources.
  • Partners: Continued support for electoral oversight by the International Foundation for Elections Systems.

Result 2

  • Data reliability: High; the activity and effectiveness of the OSCE AG documents its activity in its regular reports to OSCE member states and is reported on by NGOs and foreign diplomats working in Russia.
  • Partners: The OSCE Assistance Group coordinates its activities with other international organizations (e.g., UNHRC, ICRC) and with the missions of other OSCE member states in Russia.

Performance Indicator: OAS Arms Acquisition Transparency Convention

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Convention adopted at OAS General Assembly and opened for signature by states' parties.

Three states, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Uruguay ratified the OAS Arms Acquisition Transparency Convention.

In addition to the three states that ratified the convention during FY 2001, three new states (El Salvador, Paraguay, and Peru) ratified the convention during 2002, bringing it into effect. Many ratifying states voluntarily complied with reporting requirements prior to the Convention entering into force. [Above Target]

  • Data sources/availability: This information is publicly available on the OAS website: http://www.oas.org.
  • Data reliability: This data is a matter of public record and is reliable.
  • Partners: Department coordinates closely with members of the OAS.

Performance Indicator: Multilateral Arms Transfer Code of Conduct

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Conduct discussions with major arms producers on the likely nature of the International Arms Sales Code of Conduct Act of 1999 that instructs our President to attempt to negotiate an international regime to promote transparency, and limit, restrict, or prohibit arms transfers.

A draft text for a multilateral Arms Transfer Code of Conduct was developed, but because arms sales reflect national foreign policies, we do not foresee significant non-European adherence to the code in the near- to long-term.

Several influential countries have overcome their reluctance regarding an international arms transfer code of conduct. They are preparing their own versions of such a code and developing strategies for widespread adoption. [Slightly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator discontinued in subsequent plans in favor of the Wassenaar Arrangement, as an indicator to measure progress toward the performance goal.

Result

  • Data sources/availability: Department records
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: It is to our advantage to let other countries develop their own text for a code before continuing further.
  • Partners: Department continues to build on coordination achieved in previous years.

Performance Indicator: Arms Transparency in UN Review and Wassenaar Arrangement Control Lists

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

The Wassenaar Arrangement agrees to a modest increase in arms-transfer reporting requirements beyond the categories covered by the UN Conventional Arms Register. UN Register participation increases to more than 90 states; China continues to not participate; Egypt drops counter-resolution at UN.

Agreement in Wassenaar to add reporting on two new sub-categories of military vehicles. Continued opposition to establishing new Small Arms/Light Weapons category; revised ship tonnage category; enhanced arms transparency in Wassenaar. Pressed harder for reporting of arms and other transfers subject to national reporting requirements. U.S. goals were advanced through discussions in three working-level groups (licensing/enforcement, control lists, and policy). Wassenaar Arrangement Information System expected on-line in early 2002.

  1. No new categories were added to Wassenaar Arrangement Control Lists, but good progress was made in this multiyear effort. [Slightly Below Target]
  2. 122 states participated in the UN Register of Conventional Arms Transfers. China still did not participate. [Slightly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Modified in subsequent plans to Effectiveness of Wassenaar Arrangement control lists.

Result 1

  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: This is a multi-year effort. Progress is expected.
  • Partners: Intense coordination and negotiation with other agencies was needed to attain this goal.

Result 2

  • Data sources/availability: The UN Department of Disarmament Affairs maintains the Register, providing information on participation and on national returns.
  • Data reliability: The UN Register depends on national data, which are as complete and reliable as the input of each participating state. Even with the potential for minor mistakes, the Register gives a reliable indication of transfers. The Register does not, of course, include black market transfers.
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: China continued to refuse to resume participation in the Register as a protest against U.S. reporting exports to Taiwan. China's refusal means that one of the seven principal arms exporters is still not reporting data to the Register. The U.S. and others will continue to press China to be transparent in its conventional arms transfers and not hide behind the political issue of Taiwan.

Performance Indicator: Dayton Arms Control

2000 BASELINE

2001 RESULTS

2002 RESULTS

Articles II and IV Agreements are being satisfactorily implemented; Article V negotiations proceeding at a deliberate pace.

Improved implementation of Article II. Mixed results in attempts to improve implementation of Article IV Agreement. Article V negotiations concluded.

Article II implementation continues to improve. The Article IV Parties had a successful third review conference in June 2002. Article V had its first review conference in June 2002, which agreed to rules and procedures for future review conferences. [On Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Indicator has been discontinued in subsequent plans because all milestones have now been completed and work on this issue will be routine maintenance.

Result

  • Data sources/availability: Information on all Dayton arms control forums comes from the parties themselves at formal meetings, from OSCE reporting and from bilateral contacts with OSCE and the parties. Inspection and data exchange reports indicate whether the parties are in compliance with the letter of the Articles II and IV Agreements. Specifics of all this reporting are restricted to the parties, contact group or OSCE-participating states, but much is publicly available from OSCE.
  • Data reliability: Data are reliable because it comes from the parties themselves. However, politics plays a great role in Dayton arms control, so assessments about results can be subjective.
  • Partners The OSCE has responsibility for managing Dayton Articles II and IV. The Contact Group (the U.S., UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Russia) and the Dayton "witness states" provide support. The U.S. works closely with the OSCE Personal Representative for Articles II and IV, with Contact Group members, and with the Parties to ensure improved implementation of Dayton arms control.

Fighting broke out over line of control.

Attempts at negotiation made no progress.

Continued military action by both sides along the line of control (LOC).

Existing confidence-building measures ignored.

Pakistan providing materiel assistance and training to groups fighting in Kashmir.

No good channels of communication.

Suspension of Indian offensive security force operations November - May.

Continued militant infiltration and attacks. Agra Summit broke down over communiqu� wording on terrorism.

Major terrorist attacks brought India and Pakistan close to war, but U.S. and UK diplomatic intervention helped ease tensions, and President Musharraf took actions against Kashmir jihadist militants. India successfully holds elections in Kashmir. [Significantly Below Target]

Details of 2002 Results

Overall

  • Validity: Re-titled from "The situation along and near the Kashmir Line of Control" to better track tension between Pakistan and India related to Kashmir.

Result

  • Data sources/availability: USG reporting
  • Data reliability: Data complete regarding actions, but not intentions.
  • Impact of Performance Shortfall: Hostilities prevent dialogue between India and Pakistan on all issues, including Kashmir. Hostilities also prevent dialogue with insurgents.
  • Partners: Through the South Asia PCC, the Department coordinates closely with DOD, NSC and the intelligence community.

Strategic Goal 2: Weapons of Mass Destruction
Annual Performance Goal 1: Weapons of Mass Destruction and their Means of Delivery are Contained; Proliferation to Other Countries and Terrorists is Prevented, Contained, or Reversed

    2002 RESULTS

    Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty in effect.

    U.S. decided not to deploy a limited national missile defense at this time.

    Russians accepted U.S. withdrawal from AMB Treaty.

    Presidents Bush and Putin agreed to continue consultations on establishing a new strategic relationship based on mutual interests and cooperation rather than mutual vulnerability. The U.S.-Russian relationship is much broader than the ABM Treaty. U.S. initiated series of consultations about missile defense with allies, Russia, and China.

    USG established the basis of a "New Strategic Framework" for its security relationship with Russia that consists of, among other things, a new approach to deterrence that relies on both offensive and defensive means. The U.S. exercised its right to withdraw from the ABM Treaty, thus removing the principal legal obstacle to pursuing alternative approaches to developing an effective missile defense system. The Department led or participated in more than 125 consultation visits on U.S. missile defense efforts, threat assessments, and ABM Treaty withdrawal, which lead to the formation of cooperative missile defense development programs. The Department instituted a regular dialogue with Russia that was designed to increase transparency and openness in missile defense endeavors. [Above Target]

    • Data reliability: The data at any given time are reliable; however this is a political process and national views can change over time.
    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: China continued to block the resumption of FMCT negotiations in the Conference on Disarmament by linking them to negotiations on outer space arms control, which the U.S. opposes, and has refused all attempts at reasonable compromise. The continuing deadlock is undermining the credibility of the CD as the principal forum of the international community to negotiate formal multilateral arms control agreements and issues; losing its credibility would hurt primarily those states who do not have other forums to turn to for addressing these issues, and the U.S. would lose a venue both for educating and persuading other states of U.S. views and positions, and for any future negotiations to conclude multilateral agreements based on those views and positions.
    • Partners: The Department coordinates with the Departments of Defense and Energy on actions at the Conference on Disarmament, and works with organizations such as the UN, the EU, NATO, the NPT Review Conference Process, and the G-8 to maintain momentum in support of FMCT negotiations.

    Website received 55.7 million hits (30 million more than in FY '98), averaging 147,821 per day. Website featured new sections on student safety abroad and crisis awareness, preparedness, and response. Website received "best of the Web" kudos from Ask Jeeves (Silver Platter Site) and GovSpot (Spotlight Award). Website promoted as the best place to obtain consular information and an authoritative source of travel safety information. Planning for call center began.

    Website averaged almost 240,000 hits per day (87.2M in FY 2000); 90% of users found information helpful; added section on road safety abroad. One of 16 "Best Feds on the Web" (Government Executive). Issued 40 Travel Warnings, 138 Public Announcements, and 150 Consular Information Sheets.

    Website averaged 324,226 hits per day (117,990,124 in FY '01). Ninety percent of users found information helpful. We added a Passport Acceptance Facility Database searchable by ZIP Code to help customers locate the nearest place to apply for a passport. We also added a section on the new V and K visas. We issued 65 Travel Warnings, 120 Public Announcements, and 189 Consular Information Sheets. We issued a Request for Proposal to establish a Consular Contact Center to handle citizens' services, passport, and visa public information programs. We drafted scripts for contact center operators and posted them on the Intranet, where posts reviewed them and supplemented them with post-specific information.

    Five fillable passport applications were added to the web site for international travelers.

    The website received 128 million hits (10M more than in FY 2001), averaging 347,254 hits per day. 94.3% of users participating in an on-line survey found the web site helpful, up from 90% in the past 3 years.

    Data exist, but systems lack ability to track trends or report.

    The ACS system in OCS and all operating consular sections made a successful transition to Year 2000. Sixty additional posts began replicating data to and from Washington. Thirty-seven overseas posts gained electronic access to passport issuance information. Initial work on identifying user needs completed.

    The International Parental Child Abduction application module was deployed. CA conducted a successful test phase of the U.S. Government comprehensive case management tracking system for international parental child abduction cases. CA and INS coordinated efforts to create an inter-agency adoption tracking system. Requirements analysis/validation and development of a system design concept for the adoptions tracking system began. Data from the American Citizens Service (ACS) system (including U.S. passports) at all consular posts worldwide is now transmitted in near-real time to a Consolidated Consular Database (CCD) in Washington, D.C. This data is then available via a Web interface to Washington and consular managers. The latest ACS release includes improvements to arrest services, and the reporting functionality is facilitated through establishment of the CCD. CA has used Access programs to obtain an overall picture of the mistreatment of Americans incarcerated overseas and to share that information with DRL. We have begun the process of tracking the manner of death of Americans who die overseas. We deployed the Crisis Management module for use by the domestic task force staff to improve our service to Americans during crises. We piloted a Consular Lost and Stolen Passport database.

    • Case-management software developed for international parental child abduction cases and in use by the Office of Children's Issues.
    • American Citizens Services case management system (ACS) updated to collect data on mistreatment of and consular access to U.S. arrestees abroad and to permit compliance with a new requirement in PL 107-228 to publish information about overseas deaths of Americans from non-natural causes. Detailed system requirement analysis for the complete re-engineering of the ACS system was completed, to replace current software with a state-of-the-art program enabling greater information sharing among posts.
    • Modernized version of CRISIS.
    • Consular Lost and Stolen Passport System (CLASP) deployed to all overseas posts and domestic passport agencies.
    • Software to manage international adoption cases was delayed to accommodate the Department's new responsibilities as Central Authority under the Hague Convention on adoptions.
    • Detailed system requirements have been written, and development is scheduled for completion in 2004.

    Note: None of the indicators used in the FY2001/2002 Performance Plan is reported on in this FY 2002 Performance Report. These indicators were dropped from this Strategic Goal because the September 11 attacks led the Department to reformulate its CT policies and priorities completely in order to respond to a radically new and unanticipated situation in which substantial new responsibilities have been added to the Department's CT portfolio. As a result, the indicators used in previous performance reports are no longer valid. The new indicators shown here accurately reflect the Department's CT policy and programs and provide a realistic means for measuring progress.

    • Sources/availability: ILEA and Department records.
    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: The number of students trained through bilateral programs ("Other") dropped drastically following the events of 9/11 as USG training agencies redirected training resources to counterterrorism operations and programs. In addition, in FY 2003 the Department began shifting away from short-term, and in some cases "off-the-shelf", training courses toward project-oriented training. Training classes for the latter are often specially tailored and normally smaller.
    • Partners: Department coordinates with a broad range of other agencies, including DEA, FBI, U.S. Customs, Treasury, Justice, INS, Secret Service, Commerce, and Defense.

    • Sources/availability: CIA Crime and Narcotics Center (CNC). Final CNC figures are not available. CNC estimates can be misleading because of inherent limitations in the type of data collected, which cannot measure the impact eradication has on yearly production or long-term effects on cultivation.
    • Data reliability: Data are reliable in terms of gross numbers of hectares but cannot distinguish between mature or dying plants. Data does not measure the impact of eradication on production and supply. The Department is looking at ways to derive reliable predictions that factor in the number of newly planted or replanted hectares, which should provide a more reliable indicator of the effectiveness of eradication efforts.
    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: The shortfall is more apparent than real - the CNC estimates cover cultivation, not production. The number of hectares of mature plants, which are more productive, has decreased significantly, while the overall cultivation area increased. The spray program in Colombia will intensify in 2003 due to increase in equipment and the opening up of regions previously off limits due to political considerations by previous Colombian government.
    • Partners: DOD provides training and equipment for selected counternarcotics military units and equipment support for the Department's Airwing program. CNC provides analysis of cultivation. DEA provides operational support, intelligence, and training. USAID manages alternative development programs.

    • Sources/availability: UN and CIA Crime and Narcotics Center (CNC). There are some differences between data provided by the U.S. and the UN due primarily to differences in methodology used in data collection.
    • Data reliability: The data is reliable; some differences between figures provided by CNC and the UN are due to differences in methodology.
    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: In 2002, Afghanistan once again became the world's leading producer of opium poppy. The Afghan government's ability to prevent or reduce planting of the 2003 spring crop will depend to a large degree on its ability to extend central authority throughout the country and especially to the major poppy cultivation regions. The U.S., U.K., and others are reviewing current eradication/alternative development programs to increase effectiveness and speed implementation.
    • Partners: The Department coordinates with many other agencies and, in many cases, funds their assistance programs and efforts. CNC provides analysis and information. USAID manages alternative development programs. DEA provides operational support. UN Office of Drugs and Crime provides coordination, and program assistance.

    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: This indicator has been dropped because the holding of summits is a sporadic and ad hoc process that does not necessarily correlate with improved international counternarcotics cooperation, which has been improving in recent years. This does not mean that such conferences are not useful, simply that they lack the desired value as a performance indicator. Following the events of 9/11 the U.S. and international focus on terrorism made it more difficult to organize such conferences at the summit level.

Although the Department was not aware of an instance where gross violators received training or funds in violation of Leahy, lack of 100% compliance in all categories make this a possibility. The new Leahy guidance cable addresses this shortfall. Additional work on monitoring implementation will need to be done.

    UNHCR's repatriation programs for East Timorese refugees were almost over and turned over to development agencies. UNHCR planned for FY 2002 a 1-year program to facilitate the local integration or repatriation of the remaining East Timorese in West Timor.

    Repatriation programs for Kosovar Albanians concluded and continuing reintegration needs were turned over to development agencies. UNHCR completed most of its assistance programs for refugee returnees, but continued to provide protection and assistance to some 220,000 minority IDPs in Kosovo and Serbia. Returns of Serbian IDPs to Kosovo had just begun.

    Progress was made in garnering support for consideration of environmental provisions in the FTAA process. However, some countries still question the need to address environmental issues in trade discussions.

    Negotiations are ongoing, as are negotiations for 3-4 bilateral FTAs. The Trade Act of 2002, passed during the last quarter of FY 2002, authorized the President to negotiate trade agreements subject to an up-or-down vote in Congress. Negotiations continued in FY 2002, with a ministerial meeting in November 2002.

    • Impact of Performance Shortfall: While environmental concerns were incorporated into the declaration of the Nov. 2002 Ministerial summit, they are not yet incorporated into the draft FTAA text. Since the Trade Promotion Authority Act has set this target as a top objective for any final FTAA agreement, it will most likely be reached - but probably not in FY 2003. Increased attention to bilateral FTAs and to the Doha Round of WTO negotiations has reduced the strategic attention paid to FTAA. While the U.S. continues to make the incorporation of environmental concerns into FTAA a top priority, the manpower and resources have shifted to bilateral FTAs. While FTAA remains one of the Department's targets, given the slow pace of negotiations on the environmental aspect of FTAA, resources will be directed toward the growing number of bilateral FTA negotiations, which have more ambitious timelines.

    Poor political climate and Intifada-related violence made all regional activities extremely difficult and progress on all projects slower than planned. One new water activity and one new environment activity were initiated. Regional water center in Amman was not formally established due to the political situation, but work at the center was undertaken on an informal basis. Desalination Center initiated several new research projects. Development of water curriculum continued.

    The water curriculum for high school students was published in Arabic and Hebrew, and placement in schools began. Middle East experts and officials continued work on multilateral water and environment projects. Rainfall intensity activity was completed in the regional water data banks project, and regional participants agreed on a follow-up activity; one new hydro-geologic activity began, and several more are planned. A new combined water-environment activity in wastewater treatment and reuse was prepared. The USG funded participants in the Dryland Management initiative to attend a workshop on sustainable agroecosystems.

The Indonesian forest continues to be lost at a increasingly rapid rate due to intentionally set fires; no apparent GOI action taken to prevent it.
    • Data reliability: There has been a marked improvement since 1997-98 in the Government of Indonesia's ability to pinpoint and quantify the extent of fires and the resulting haze, primarily due to the sharing of regional satellite images and other monitoring activities. The problem is not a lack of information but a lack of good governance.

    • Validity: Indicator has been discontinued in subsequent plans because it indicates only initial interest and completion of simple on-line registration.

    Result

    • Data reliability: While this data is complete and reliable, it is not the most critical measure. The Department has determined that the indicator of exam registrants is not a reliable indicator of its outreach efforts. Registration is a simple on-line process while taking the exam shows commitment and therefore indicates how well the Department has reached its target audiences. In 2002, 27,000 people took the FSWE as compared to 13,000 in 2001 and 8000 in 2000. This no-show rate is typical. In addition, the Department now tracks minority interest through the percentage who take the FSWE. In 2002, 35 percent of exam takers were minorities as compared with 27% in 2001 and 27% in 2000. In deficit areas, the Department also had success in recruiting. In 2002: consular career track takers were 25.7% of FSWE takers and admin career track 16.7%; for comparison 2001: consular 24.4% and admin 16% of exam takers 2000: consular 28.3% and admin 18.1% of exam takers. With higher overall numbers of exam takers, these percentages translate into a good turnout for those historically deficit career tracks.
    • Partners: Outreach and recruitment activities involve coordination with many associations and conferences as well as colleges and universities, and with interagency initiatives like A Call to Serve.
