Stability in Key Areas East (SIKA-E) (Afghanistan)


Titre : Stability in Key Areas East (SIKA-E) (Afghanistan)

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : December 2011 – September 2015

SIKA-East is designed to promote stability in key areas of eastern Afghanistan. The project supports district-level government entities to help improve governance and basic service delivery. SIKA-East’s overarching goal is to increase citizen confidence in and support for the Afghan Government.
Project partners work closely with district-level government, MRRD, and IDLG to identify community projects and develop existing subnational development and governance structures, including Community Development Councils (CDCs) and District Development Assemblies (DDAs). Local work crews carry out the work, and local government supervision is a high priority. Typical work financed by SIKA grants includes construction of irrigation infrastructure, flood-protection, bridges, school rehabilitation, upgrades to roads, and vocational training. SIKA East works in 30 districts in six provinces in eastern Afghanistan.

Training district staff on sources of instability and governance-related remedies. • Providing district entities and communities with USAID-produced manuals to understand what organizations and provincial departments work in their communities, the services they provide, and how the public can access these services. • Through a grants mechanism, District entities are delivering improved basic services to their communities, building confidence in the Afghan government. In addition, government officials and community members at the local, district, and provincial levels receive technical training in project management.

Financement : $145 million
