Provincial Reconstruction Teams | Iraq: Effective Review, Planning, and Standards of Practice

Pedroza, Edgar

The initial PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team) effort in Iraq commenced in earnest throughout 2005 and early 2006. The intended process of facilitating provincial capacity, although, met a number of obstacles throughout its execution. A key inquiry of the following text has been what have been the threats to the operational capacity of PRTs in meeting the mission of 'capacity development'? Have existing efforts to identify the mission, organization, and effectiveness of PRTs allowed for the identification of logistical, physical, and organizational threats to PRT operations? Could the resulting area of foci, as identifying the treats to the operational capacity of PRTs, allow for the ability to remediate areas of weakness to the existing PRT mission of 'capacity development'?
