UNDP Afghanistan Annual Report 2013: Results in Focus
During the year 2013, UNDP Afghanistan remained committed to maintaining an ever closer working relationship with Afghanistan’s government and people, and building on what is, by far, the largest UNDP operation in the world.
To ensure its continued relevance and increase its efficiency, UNDP since 2012 embarked on a systematic process of reflection on the substantive approach of its development work. This resulted in the identification of six thematic areas, based on the Afghanistan National Development Strategy and National Priority Programmes, the MDGs, New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States and UNDP’s mandate, expertise and experience. Six development strategies were developed in the areas of: inclusive and legitimate politics; sub-national governance and development; rule of law; and the cross-cutting areas of gender, capacity development, and poverty and the environment.
In the context of these strategies, projects were implemented and results achieved in the areas of peacebuilding, rule of law, democratic governance, poverty reduction and livelihoods, and managing resources for sustainability and resilience. For more information, please download the full report.
