The leadership of the USAID Global Bureau Center for Environment (G/ENV) and the Department of State’s Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs (OES) engaged International Resources Group (IRG) to determine ways to enhance overall cooperation between the two organizations. The request grew from the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act, passed by Congress in 1998, and a June 1999 memorandum from Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to then USAID Administrator Brian Atwood, both of which emphasized a closer State Department–USAID relationship. The assignment also resulted from a belief, shared by Assistant Secretary Sandalow and Deputy Assistant Administrator Hales, that a greater degree of coordination could result in synergies beneficial to both OES and G/ENV.
