Afghanistan Design Report 2019-2021 – For Public Comment
In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the design report for Afghanistan’s second action plan. The report covers the action plan development process and the design of commitments.
In Afghanistan, the IRM researchers Huma Saeed and Ravio Patra’s findings are summarized below:
Afghanistan’s second action plan was co-created through strong collaboration between government and civil society. The 18 commitments cover a diverse range of thematic areas, including anti-corruption, public service delivery, and participatory budgeting. To achieve successful implementation, Afghanistan needs to ensure active multistakeholder engagement and monitoring. The plan offers an opportunity to leverage local government reform to enhance participation and accountability tools.
The report is available in English and Dari. The public comment period closed 9 February 2021.
