Stability in Key Areas – North (SIKA-N) Afghanistan


Titre : Stability in Key Areas – North (SIKA-N) Afghanistan

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : March 2012 – May 2015

Stability in Key Areas - North (SIKA-N) promotes stabilization and good governance in some of Afghanistan’s historically unstable and weakly governed provinces. Project managers work with district and community-level government officials to deliver grants that address the local populations’ needs and concerns, often through small scale public works projects. Typical work includes construction of local flood control ditches and dams, embankments, pedestrian bridges, school equipment, and upgrades to dirt roads.
Through grant work, 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 process, hiring local work crews and local government supervision are priorities. SIKA-N operates in nine districts of Baghlan and Konduz provinces.

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

Financement : $38 million
