UNDP Afghanistan Mission Statement
UNDP supports stabilization, state-building, 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.
Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD)
The Mission of the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) is to ensure the social, economic, and political welfare of rural society, especially poor and vulnerable people, through the provision of basic services, strengthening local governance, and promoting sustainable livelihoods. MRRD accomplishes this mission through donor funded national programs in the areas of governance, infrastructure and economic growth.
Since 2003, MRRD and its programmes have electrified 8005 village communities providing electricity to an estimated 30% of the rural population of Afghanistan. At the current electrification rate, it is projected that all rural villages in Afghanistan will be electrified by 2042, missing the universal electrification goal by 2030 under the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative by 12 years.
Afghanistan Sustainable Energy for Rural Development (ASERD)
The Afghanistan Sustainable Energy for Rural Development (ASERD) programme developed by MRRD and UNDP is contributing since 2016 to increasing the access to thermal energy and electricity through a technology neutral approach, in rural communities in Afghanistan. By the end of the project in 2019, it is expected this will result in increasing the access to electricity, clean cooking and heating options and will contribute to rural economic development and a tangible reduction in the pre-mature deaths of women and children due to indoor air pollution. The project will pilot seven innovative financing models which once successful will be mainstreamed. The project will also establish conducive policy and regulatory frameworks and capacity development of key stakeholders. It is envisaged that the project will establish a sustainable rural energy supply approach which can be scaled up beyond the project period.
The programme focuses on the following areas:
Output 1: Rural Energy Services increased in targeted areas: This output will seek to provide rural energy services – both electrical and thermal energy to rural village communities/Community Development Council . The output involves providing electricity using mini and micro-grids with a clear preference for larger mini-grids and will provide thermal energy services through renewable energy and energy efficient systems and devices through a finance-service arrangement.
Output 2: Rural energy policy and regulations developed: This output will create a favorable policy environment for rural energy efforts. The output will support the development of technical and environmental protection standards and a quality assurance framework for rural energy equipment, specific legal and policy instruments to implement and enforce the Rural Renewable Energy Policy ; regulations for governing interface between mini-grids and the national grid and creating a fiscal and financial incentive framework.
Output 3: Innovative approaches to delivering rural energy piloted in target areas: This output will involve the piloting of seven pilot rural energy service delivery models such as a 5P model, a rural economic zone, a private investment de-risking mechanism, migrant remittances linked rural energy service model, women’s thermal energy service linked to carbon finance, Kuchi women’s portable energy pilot and a mobile telephony linked rural energy service model.
Output 4: Capacity of rural communities and relevant institutions developed: This output will support the institutional capacity development of Rural Energy and Enterprise Directorate, MRRD, training and capacity building of banks/Financial Institutions; build capabilities of research, education and training institutions; carry out generic promotion and outreach; establishment and maintenance of a website; establish an MIS for the programme; carry out analytical and policy research and publication of key reports.
