The proposed operation supports a range of reforms under two pillars that are closely aligned with the Government’s objectives: i) enhance the policy framework to expand access to
economic opportunities for the vulnerable; and ii) strengthen the policy and regulatory framework for private sector development. Reforms under the first pillar are intended to broaden access to economic opportunities to excluded populations in Afghanistan, including the rural poor, newly urbanizing populations, returnees, and the internally displaced. Reforms under the second pillar will facilitate growth of the private sector. Accelerated private sector development will support required job creation and the mitigation of macroeconomic imbalances potentially accompanying expected declines in aid.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx.
