DATES: June 2008 - September 2013
PARTNERS: Consortium for Electoral and Political Processes Support (CEPPS) and Independent Directorate of Local Governance
The Support to Sub-National Governance Structure project provides training and support to 34 Provincial Councils (PCs) to conduct oversight and to contribute to the provincial development process. In addition to enhancing the PCs’ understanding of their legal mandate, the project provides support to the General Directorate for Coordination of Local Council Affairs (GDLCA), a unit within the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), to work towards the following objectives: 1) Increase the professional skills and technical capacity of PC members and staff in Afghanistan’s 34 provinces; 2) improve coordination among PCs, the national parliament, district-level bodies and relevant executive officials at the national and sub-national levels; and, (3) increase IDLG–GDLCA’s human resource capacity to support and empower PC members.
