Résumé
Road to Jobs’ aims at unleashing the economic potential of the expanding rural road network in Afghanistan, which has been supported by SIDA-UNOPS. These new roads provide rural communities with the opportunity for better connectivity to markets. Road to Jobs will help turn that opportunity into reality in selected Northern Provinces. The project will enhance competitive rural and urban value chains connected by the road network through multi-faceted interventions that respond to the underlying constraints inhibiting pro-poor sector growth. Giving special attention to vulnerable and marginalized groups, including women, the project will build on knowledge from the recent JICA-ILO study on cross-country agriculture value chains. It will draw on lessons from the successful model of a market development approach, as deployed with success elsewhere by SIDA-ILO, to promote market-driven, locally-owned strategies that build on the incentives and capacities of various public and private actors to change : and hence increase prospects for the more and better jobs to be created and sustained-based on social dialogue at the local level.
