The National Solidarity Program (NSP) is widely considered as the flagship program for the rural development in Afghanistan. It is a program designed and implemented by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation Development (MRRD) in close collaboration with the World Bank. The Program is strengthening local governance in Afghanistan in order to improve the access of rural communities to social and productive infrastructure and services by channeling resources to democratically-elected Community Development Councils (CDCs) and building the capacity of CDCs to facilitate community level investments. The importance of rural development has been affirmed in the document named “Realizing Self-Reliance” presented by the Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GoIRA) during the last London Conference as well as in the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) and in the Tokyo Mutual Accountability Framework (TMAF). The program is at its third phase (NSP III) and it aims to disburse a first BG to the communities uncovered during the phase I and II (around 17.000), adding a second BG for all the communities who have successfully completed the activities funded with the first BG. The projects realized so far with the Italian grant are 416 involving around 378.000 individuals and 75.000 families. The NSP in general is paying attention to the vulnerable people as women, IDPs, small ethnic groups through an inclusive participation system in the CDCs election and during the implementation of project activities. All NSP projects are small-scale rural infrastructures with a very low environmental and social impact (irrigation schemes, boreholes, micro hydro-power plant, tertiary road ….). read more close
