Afghanistan Urban Peacebuilding Programme (AUPP)
Policy and programme experiences from different countries have shown the correlation between government legitimacy, stability and peace. The Afghanistan Urban Peacebuilding Programme (AUPP) addresses this complex relationship between governance and peace. The “Safety in Afghan Cities” report, developed from the programme’s baseline survey, presents public perceptions on urban safety in eight of Afghanistan’s most strategic cities, including Kabul, Mazar-e-Sharif, Jalalabad, Herat, Kunduz, Nili, Bamyan and Farah. It describes people’s opinion on safety and stability by highlighting four dimensions of the issue:
- Current perceptions on the state of urban safety.
- Awareness of rights and engagement with local authorities.
- Provision of municipal and police services, particularly for vulnerable groups.
- Changes needed to improve safety in cities.
