Project Description

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.
