UNDP in Afghanistan
The Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) Capacity Building Support Project in Afghanistan
Project, supported by the United Nations Development Prorgamme (UNDP) and the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF), will enhance the capacity of non-governmental implementation partners in delivering quality basic services to the most vulnerable in the communities.
The NGOs and CSOs will be selected based on their operational and programmatic capacity and aspirations for quick outreach, engagement, and design of interventions to enhance access to essential services and support to jobs and livelihoods for vulnerable communities and marginalized population groups in Afghanistan, including persons with disabilities. Tailored capacity building support will be provided in parallel to NGOs/CSOs implementation of agreed activities, which will also facilitate on-the-job learning.
The selection criteria are composed of eligibility criteria to indicate which NGOs and CSOs are eligible, and priority criteria to prioritise NGOs and CSOs and implement Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) with small grants (Low Value Grants). This will facilitate kick-starting of NGOs and CSOs operations on the ground and keeping their staff, while QIPs will support local communities’ access to basic services in health, education, and other livelihoods opportunities.
The Project will build capacity for a total of 400 NGOs and CSOs across the 8 regions and 34 provinces of Afghanistan. Implementation is planned for 24 months.
The preliminary SEP aims to identify tailored approaches to reach different sub-groups for consultations and disclosure. These, in turn, are expected to create a rapport that creates inclusive spaces that allow: i) stakeholder identification and analysis; (ii) planning engagement modalities, viz., an effective communication tool for consultations and disclosure; and (iii) enabling platforms for influencing decisions; (iv) defining role and responsibilities of different actors in implementing the Plan; and (iv) grievance redress mechanism (GRM).
Comments and feedback to the SEP are welcome. Please get in touch with Communications.email@example.com for questions or comments.
