UNDP Global Mission Statement:
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. We are 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 Afghanistan is supporting the Government to find innovative solutions to its development challenges based on the Country Programme Document approved by the Executive Board for the period 2015 – 2020. Key priority areas for UNDP assistance are strengthening accountable governance, justice and rule of law, equitable and inclusive development, and social equity, with special attention to women. UNDP Afghanistan seeks to achieve transformational change in an environment of high complexity and insecurity. Conflict sensitivity is applied throughout the programme and is mainstreamed in all projects. Political, economic, and conflict analysis of the provinces where UNDP works will be undertaken through UNDP’s regional hubs at the sub-national level. This will have to be accompanied by greater use of national systems, focus on capacity development instead of capacity substitution and helping to phase out parallel structures, and strengthen approaches to regionalization.
UNDP has administered the Law and Order Trust Fund for Afghanistan (LOTFA) and supported the payment of salaries of the Afghan National Police (ANP) personnel, the institutional development of the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOIA), and police professionalization of the ANP since 2002. Based on consultations conducted in 2017, a growing view emerged that the scope of LOTFA should be expanded to include the entire justice chain (police, courts and corrections) and cover all institutions across the entire Rule of Law sector, with an increased focus on anti-corruption. Accordingly, the LOTFA Steering Committee approved a new Trust Fund Terms of Reference (TOR) with four Thematic Windows: 1) Security, 2) Justice, 3) Anti-Corruption, and 4) MOIA Payroll.
The Security Window is LOTFA’s largest programme window given the volume of programmatic resources, the total number of projects, as well as the range of programmatic areas it supports from community and urban security policing services to public administration reform in MOIA. Under the Security Window, new projects are currently being designed and developed in alignment with the national strategies, plans and policies and with the Fund’s Strategic Framework. Developing relevant projects under LOTFA which are relevant and impactful for the MOIA, the ANP and the community is of utmost importance given the changing security environment in Afghanistan.
A survey conducted in 2018 found that only 42.1% of Afghans view the ANP as being “honest and fair”, while 42% of respondents expressed “fear of encountering the Police”.
The survey results show that significant improvements are needed if the MOIA is to achieve the objective of transforming the ANP into a professional community-centered law enforcement agency using community policing as a critical methodology to refocus police priorities to provide community-police services.
Under the LOTFA Security Window, the Community-oriented Policing Services (COPS) project builds and expands on proven methods of improving relations between police and local communities in Afghanistan with the objective to improve the delivery of police services at the community level. This is expected to improve security and security within communities, resulting in improved public trust towards the rule of law and security institutions. The project will initially focus on the Provincial Headquarters and Police Districts in Kabul.
The project is expected to achieve four outputs: (1) Improved capacity of Police Provincial Headquarters to lead and sustain reform; (2) Improved police response to community needs and priorities; (3) Constructed/rehabilitated standard Police Districts (PDs) to support community-oriented policing; (4) Improved administrative services at PD levels to support police services.
A consultant will be recruited to provide technical supervision on policing activities in line with international standards and best practices. The consultant will also support the ROLHS Unit in providing technical advice as needed related to policing and the provision of police services.
