Afghanistan Urban Peacebuilding Programme (AUPP)
Policy and programme experiences from different countries have shown the correlation between government legitimacy, stability and peace. Provision of basic services and infrastructure, fairness in service delivery (especially toward vulnerable groups), and inclusive and transparent governance processes are all factors that contribute toward creating state legitimacy. This establishes people’s trust in their government and helps to build stable societies. The Afghanistan Urban Peace building Programme (AUPP) addresses this complex relationship between governance and peace.
