Afghanistan Local Governance Assistance Project (ALGAP)
DATES: September 2004 - June 2007
The primary goal of the Afghanistan Local Government Assistance Project is to improve the basic skills of sub-national governance actors in Afghanistan. The primary target beneficiaries of this activity are Provincial Councilors, the lowest elected officials in Afghanistan. ARD helps provincial councilors to conduct consultation visits and travel throughout their province to learn of constituent needs. These consultations will expand to include other provincial governance actors, further contributing to strengthened ties between provincial governance actors and the citizenry. Civic Education activities will also take place to improve citizen knowledge about the roles and responsibilities of sub-national governance bodies.
