About Citizen Charter/MRRD:

The Citizens’ Charter is a National Priority Program (NPP) of the National Unity Government (NUG) that was officially launched on September 25, 2016. The Citizens’ Charter is an inter-ministerial, multi-sectorial NPP, where Ministries have collaborated to provide basic services to rural communities. The key service delivery ministries involved are: Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), Ministry of Education (MoE), Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL), with oversight by Ministry of Finance (MoF). MRRD has a key role and will be responsible for infrastructural development and strengthening CDCs and Cluster CDCs. The Community Development Councils (CDCs) will be linked to sub-national government to improve communication and coordination from the community to the district, provincial and national levels – increasing Government visibility and accountability. The Citizens’ Charter is an important foundation for the Government’s reform agenda, contributing to a number of priority areas including: Ensuring Citizens’ Development Rights; Building Better Governance; Reforming Development Planning & Management and Developing Partnerships. The Citizens’ Charter intends to improve service delivery by ensuring minimum service standards, provide greater responsiveness by the Government to the people and increase the level of public satisfaction with services. The Charter commits to deliver the following core services across the country over a 10 year period: • Basic health services • Basic education access • Safe drinking water and sanitation • Improved farming technologies and the delivery of extension services • Rural connectivity with tertiary roads • Rural renewable energy.

Background: The Central Asia-South Asia Electricity Transmission and Trade Project (CASA-1000) aim to facilitate electricity trade between hydropower surplus countries in Central Asia and electricity deficient countries in South Asia. The four countries participating in the project are Afghanistan, Kyrgyz Republic, Pakistan and Tajikistan. The Afghanistan portion of CASA-1000 is a 560 km DC transmission line that will extend from the Tajikistan border to the border with Pakistan near Peshawar. As part of the CASA-1000 project, the participating countries will implement individual Community Support Programs (CSPs) in each country. The aim of these programs would be to increase the shared prosperity associated with the project for communities along the CASA-1000 corridor.

CASA-CSP: For Afghanistan, CASA- CSP has been designed with the objective to strengthen community support for CASA-1000 transmission line by providing access to electricity or other social and economic infrastructure services to communities that live along a 2 kilometre ‘Corridor of Influence’ each side of the CASA-1000 transmission line. It is expected that there will be approximately 580 communities spread over 32 districts in 8 provinces, with a total of over 152,000 families along the corridor of influence (COI). Given the terrain along the COI, as well as the unique nature of community mobilization in High risk areas, there will be some flexibility to work with communities outside of the COI – funding for this will come from the unallocated funds category.
