Afghanistan Urban Peacebuilding Programme (AUPP)


By concentrating on the urban terrain of peacebuilding and state building, the programme will strengthen the delivery of services, especially related to security; improve local government responsiveness and accountability; and strengthen partnerships between government, communities, civil society, and security providers.

The programme will pay special attention to the rights and needs of women, youth, and marginalized groups such as, supporting the institutionalization of responsive and equitable service delivery in the eight target cities. The expected impact of the AUPP is: “Women and men, girls and boys, in cities have increased trust in the local government’s capacity to uphold rights, achieve safe, secure and inclusive cities, contributing to improved government legitimacy”.
