Aid and Development Corporation Effectiveness


Enhancing development cooperation effectiveness has been one of the key concerns of the development community and donors. The growing evidence that a number of donor requirements and processes for aid delivery have not producing the desired result, due to allingment and harmonization with natioal priorities and the lack of ownership and effective participation of civil socity and communities at the local level.

Development Challenges: Despite progress made by the MDGS and SDGs, poverty and inequality, in their multiple dimensions remain as the central challenges not only Afghanistan but across all regions,. Slow economic growth, food insecurity, access to water and energy, lack of quality education and decent work for all includng the instances of conflict, fragility and vulnerability to economic shocks, natural disasters, and health pandemics are also the pressing concerns in many countries in the world. Climate change add further complexity to the globle development agenda. In Afghanistan context, the collops of the government, the consertive policies, towards women participation, work and access to education, international sanctions, affected the social economic infrustructure, natual deasaters and the current humaniterian crises are the pressing challenge in the ways of development and buidling a pluralistic socity.

improving gender equality, promotionand protection of human rights.
