Stability in Key Areas – South (SIKA-S) (Afghanistan)


Titre : Stability in Key Areas – South (SIKA-S) (Afghanistan)

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : April 2012 – September 2015

Stability in Key Areas – South (SIKA-S) promotes stabilization and good governance in some of Afghanistan’s most historically unstable and weakly-governed provinces. Project managers work with district and community-level government officials to deliver grants that address local population needs and concerns, often through small scale public works projects. Typical work grants include construction of local flood control ditches and dams, embankments, pedestrian bridges, and upgrades to dirt roads. SIKA-S operates in 14 districts of southern Afghanistan.
In grants component, project partners work closely with district-level government officials, the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), and the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) to strengthen existing subnational development and governance structures, including Community Development Councils (CDCs) and District Development Assemblies (DDAs). Throughout the grants process, hiring local work crews and local government supervision are important priorities.

Provincial and district entities are trained to identify drivers of instability and appropriate counter measures available to local government. • Project officials help Provincial and District entities improve communications to better understand district populations’ needs and make delivery of basic government services more effective. • Through a grants mechanism, government officials at the local, district, and provincial levels receive training in contracting and contract management.

Financement : $66 million
