About the Author: Ambassador Robert G. Loftis has been Acting Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization since September 2010. The Coordinator leads the development of U.S. government civilian capacity to promote conflict prevention and stabilization in countries on the brink of, in, or emerging from crisis. The Coordinator oversees the Civilian Response Corps.

We are pleased to announce CivilianResponseCorps.gov. The site provides updated information on and for the Civilian Response Corps, the group of civilian federal employees from across the U.S. government who are specially trained and equipped to provide conflict prevention and stabilization assistance to countries in crisis or emerging from conflict. On the new site, you can learn about Corps members, their work, skills, and host agencies: the U.S. Department of State, Department of Justice, Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The Corps deploys with the subject-matter expertise essential to helping countries mitigate conflict and build local capacity. The Corps has worked in more than two dozen countries, including national security priorities, such as Afghanistan and Sudan. The Corps includes members from nine federal departments and agencies, leveraging a diverse range of expertise for conflict prevention and stabilization. We are diplomats, development specialists, public health officials, law enforcement and corrections officers, engineers, economists, lawyers, and others who assist U.S. embassies in their efforts to help fragile states restore stability, achieve economic recovery, and improve the lives of their citizens.

As we grow, we hope you will check our site often for the latest information on our work, and opportunities to join this innovative organization.
