Merely reacting to global crises is a costly strategy in terms of both human lives and direct financial costs. In order to get out ahead and prepare itself to face the challenges of the 21st century, the United States should:

1. Fully integrate prevention into the national strategies that guide foreign policy formulation and implementation.

2. Build an integrated, interagency mechanism for long-range strategic planning that is tied directly to the allocation of resources.

3. Organize the government to support prevention and ensure coherence across the executive branch.

4. Invest intelligence, diplomatic, and economic resources in the most vulnerable areas and regions.

5. Re-engage with the international community, and improve and then support international treaties and norms.

6. Develop new tools and capabilities for crisis management.

7. Address the resource and staff shortages of civilian agencies, particularly the State Department and the United States Agency for International Development.
