Reintegration of Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) through Policy, Planning and Targeted Assistance (EC7)

Background and Objectives


In continuation to the previous EC funded project (EC6) in Kabul and Jalalabad with the same outputs and geographical coverage, the Project aims to address the reintegration of returnees and IDPs by removing the social, political, financial, and physical obstacles which impede their ability to build sustainable livelihoods. Interventions are targeted at the household, neighbourhood, sub-district, district and municipal levels. This Project will be implemented through Community Development Councils. It will provide basic infrastructure and services and will include shelter upgrading and livelihoods development for about 8,000 households in parts of Kabul and Jalalabad through 30 new CDCs. In addition the capacity of both municipalities will be developed to continue to implement similar projects.


The objectives to be accomplished which the Project aims to contribute towards are; (i) Returnees, IDPs and the most vulnerable benefit from improved governance and sustainable access to services in selected districts and neighbourhoods in Kabul and Jalalabad; (ii) Returnees and IDPs in Sheikh Mesri Township (land allocation scheme) benefit from improved and sustainable access to infrastructure and services; (iii) Kabul and Jalalabad Municipalities are committed and have developed the capacity to provide improved governance, self-sustainable infrastructure and services to areas with high-percentage of returnees, IDPs, and most vulnerable households; and (iv) Central government agencies (MUD, IDLG, and others) are committed and have the capacity to promote policies of that facilitate the sustainable return and reintegration of returnees and IDPs.
