UNDP Afghanistan Mission Statement:
UNDP supports stabilization, state-building, and governance and development priorities in Afghanistan. UNDP support, in partnership with the Government, the United Nations system, the donor community and other development stakeholders, has contributed to institutional development efforts leading to positive impact on the lives of Afghan citizens. Over the years UNDP support has spanned such milestone efforts as the adoption of the Constitution; Presidential, Parliamentary and Provincial Council elections; institutional development through capacity-building to the legislative, the judicial and executive arms of the state, and key ministries, Government agencies and commissions at the national and subnational levels. UNDP Programmes in Afghanistan have benefited from the very active support of donors. UNDP Afghanistan is committed to the highest standards of transparency and accountability and works in close coordination with the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan and the UN system as a whole to maximize the impact of its development efforts on the ground.
The National Institution Building Project (NIBP) builds upon the proven and successful experience of the two UNDP projects, namely, Capacity for Afghan Public Services Project (CAP) and Civil Service Leadership Development (CSLD) Project. The NIBP brings the experiences of CAP and CSLD projects under a single project framework to provide a coordinated, up-scaled and comprehensive package of CD support required by the government at the national and sub-national levels. The General Directorate of Programs’ Design and Management (GDPDM) of the Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission (IARCSC) of the GIRA is the Implementing Agency for the Project. The GDPDM is responsible and accountable for managing the project, including monitoring and evaluation of project interventions, achieving project outputs, and effective use of resources.
The National Institution Building Project (NIBP), to be implemented over a period of four years (2010-2013), will follow an integrated approach to CD. The primary objectives of the project would be to enhance capacity within the ministries at all three levels, namely institutional, organizational and individual which would ultimately result into improved service delivery through an efficient, organized and trained civil service. The visible impact would be better budget utilization, rationalized organization structures and well trained civil servants.
The results of NIBP shall be achieved primarily through provision of services of Capacity Development Advisors (CDAs) in select government entities to provide coaching and advisory services for institutional strengthening, organizational reforms and skills development. Institutional and organizational reforms shall be undertaken under overall Public Administration Reform (PAR) strategy of IARCSC.
