Project Description
The objective of the Additional Financing for the Citizens Charter Afghanistan Project is to improve the delivery of core infrastructure, emergency support, and social services to participating communities through strengthened Community Development Councils (CDCs). The AF was specifically requested by the GoIRA through a letter dated March 20, 2017, in order to support an emergency response to the regional displacement crisis that Afghanistan is facing through the rapid influx of over one million expected returnees from Pakistan and other countries. Specifically, the AF will assist in: (a) expanding the geographic coverage of the CCAP to additional areas of high returnee and displaced population density; (b) adding new activities, including a component around emergency income/cash for work assistance through labor intensive public works and maintenance cash grants for both displaced households and host communities; and (c) contributing through enhanced returnee data collection and registration support to the regional coordination mechanism supported through the Tri-Partite Arrangement between the GoIRA, the Government of Pakistan (GoP) and the UNHCR. The institutional, project management, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) arrangements of the parent project will be updated accordingly to cater to the above expansion and inclusion of new activities.
