Infrastructure and Rehabilitation Program (IRP) - Power (LBG/B&V)
DATES: March 2009 - August 2011
The Afghanistan Infrastructure and Rehabilitation Program (IRP) is improving and expanding Afghanistan’s power and transportation infrastructure. Over the life of the program, this project has provided technical and executive direction as well as administrative support to more than 25 projects in the transport, energy, and construction sectors. This work includes providing helicopter services to reach the project sites; project monitoring services, including evaluations and baseline studies to measure project impact; and strategic communications to highlight successes. USAID also uses specialized services on a quick-response basis to meet emergency requests for assistance from the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA). For example, IRP provided such assistance to study power needs in the volatile south of the country to assist in project planning.
