Uruzgan Rural Access Program – Afghanistan


Titre : Uruzgan Rural Access Program – Afghanistan

Pays : Afghanistan

Date : 2012 – 2015

Australia is supporting the Uruzgan Rural Access Program (URAP) to improve access to basic services such as markets, health clinics and schools, encourage greater social interaction and provide economic opportunities by maintaining, rehabilitating and constructing rural roads and bridges. URAP is a quadripartite Agreement between Australia, the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and Afghanistan’s Ministries of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) and Public Works. URAP aligns, where possible, with Afghan Government National Rural Access Program (NRAP) partners and methods of delivery.

Australia’s intervention has provided a greater percentage of the Uruzgan rural population with all-weather access to basic services and encouraged greater social interaction, enhanced security and consolidated peace dividends.

The project’s objectives are : › construct 27 kilometres of two-lane gravel road (secondary) from Sorkh Lez to Chenartu › construct 75 kilometres and maintain 170 kilometres of one-lane gravel roads (tertiary) › further strengthen provincial government capacity to improve construction supervision and quality, and to maintain Uruzgan’s road infrastructure after the project concludes

Financement : Australia’s $25 million support commenced in October 2012 and will end in December 2015.
