USAID’s Capacity Development Program (CDP) builds the public administrative capacity of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) to implement the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS). The ANDS outlines the GIRoA's strategies for security, governance, economic growth, and poverty reduction. CDP provides technical assistance in the areas of financial management, program management, and monitoring and evaluation, ultimately building the capacity of the Afghan Government to serve its people and guide its own development.
CDP provides public administration training and support to build the capacity of GIRoA ministries, agencies, and sub-national government entities in the following areas:
Strategic planning and policy development
Organizational restructuring and work process streamlining
Procurement and contracting
Human resource development
Project design, management, monitoring, and evaluation
