Evaluation of the Clean and Green Cities Programme (6/2019)
This report is an evaluation of the Clean and Green Cities Programme (CGC) implemented by UN-Habitat Afghanistan with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the European Union (EU) between June 2016 and June 2019 with a total budget of USD 34. 8 million. It was implemented in 12 cities, three (Kabul, Kundooz, and Lashkar Gah) by the EU and ten (Bamyan, Charikar, Farah, Gardez, Herat, Jalalabad, Kabul, Kandahar, Mazar, and Mehterlam) by USAID; Kabul being considered by both agencies. Its main objective was to improve state-society relations, urban stabilisation and job creation, where urban citizens see municipalities delivering basic neighbourhood services, thus leading to increased hope and government legitimacy.
