UNDP Global Mission Statement
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP is on the ground in 166 countries, working with national counterparts on their own solutions to global and national development challenges
UNDP Afghanistan Mission Statement
UNDP supports stabilization, state-building, governance and development priorities in Afghanistan. In partnership with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIROA), the UNDP, 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’s 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, Ministries, Government agencies and commissions at the national and sub-national levels.
UNDP has played a role in the management of the Law and Order Trust Fund for Afghanistan (LOTFA), which supports the Government in developing and maintaining the national police force and in efforts to stabilize the internal security environment. Major demobilization, disarmament and rehabilitation and area-based livelihoods and reconstruction programmes have taken place nationwide. 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 (UNAMA) and the UN system to maximize the impact of its development efforts on the ground.
UNDP is committed to augmenting the capacity of the GIROA to administer Rule of Law and improve security and justice service-delivery for all Afghan citizens. As the lead Rule of Law institution in the country, improving the ability of the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOIA) to fulfill its mandate remains critical to the overall stability of Afghanistan and its people. As the UNDPs primary development agency, and a longstanding development partner to GIROAs Rule of Law and Security sector, UNDP Afghanistan plays a leading role in facilitating institutional reform and development of MOIA.
UNDP has operated the LOTFA since 2002. LOTFA up to 2017 has supported the payment of salaries of officers of the Afghan National Police (ANP) and the General Directorate for Prison and Correction Centers (GDPDC), institutional development of the MOIA and police professionalization of the ANP, through two separate projects un-der LOTFA, namely the Support to Payroll Management (SPM) and MOIA and Police Development (MPD) pro-jects. In 2015, LOTFA was restructured with the objective to ensure the full handover of the payroll functions currently managed by UNDP to the GIROA and to develop national capacity for its effective, efficient and accountable management by 31 December 2016. In December 2016, Government and donors agreed to extend the SPM project until Government and donors agree on the moment for payroll transition.
Based on consultations conducted between UNDP, the GIROA and donors during 2017, a growing view emerged that the scope of LOTFA should be expanded to include the entire justice chain (police, courts and prisons) and cover all institutions across the entire Rule of Law sector, with an increased focus on anti-corruption. Accordingly, the following three Thematic Windows have been identified for the Strategic Framework: 1) Security; 2) Justice; 3) Anti-Corruption; and 4) MOIA Payroll.
Subsequently, the LOTFA structure has been revised to bring it more in line with international standards and best practices on Trust Fund management and administration. The new Trust Fund Terms of Reference (TOR) was approved by the LOTFA Steering Committee on 25 November 2018. Under the revised structure, a Trust Fund Management Unit (TFMU) will be established to support the LOTFA Steering Committee and the UNDP Country Office in the coordination of the technical, administrative, financial and operational aspects of Trust Fund management and administration.
The new Trust Fund Terms of Reference (TOR) and Strategic Framework specifically emphasize on the establishment of a robust M&E Framework for LOTFA. M&E sits at the heart of LOTFA. LOTFA is building a compelling evidence base about what works and what doesn’t in Afghanistan’s law and justice sector so that it can confidently plan and implement initiatives that bring greatest impact to the lives of Afghan citizens. LOTFA is rolling out a comprehensive M&E approach: M&E will be part of all project designs through to implementation and wrap-up and will provide real time information flow and feedback to support a flexible, adaptive management approach and an evidenced-based understanding of LOTFA outputs and impact.
The improved M&E system will enable LOTFA stakeholders, donors and national institutions to make informed decisions on the direction of future Trust Fund planning and programming. It will enable the use of evidence-based adaptive management alongside traditional methods so that it meets the requirements stated in the MISP 2018-2022 for local solutions that respond to local needs.
