The purpose of this program/Grant is to provide a basic labour stimulus and stabilization package for 10 strategic Afghan cities. The overall objectives of the proposal are to:
- improve state-society relations where urban citizens see municipalities delivering basic neighbourhood services;
- establish a cleaner, safer, and healthier urban environment and public spaces;
- improve urban and household economies, especially for the most vulnerable households, including at-risk youth; and
- increase private sector confidence and investment. From 2016 to 2019, CGC has been implemented in 10 strategic afghan cities to prove 10,000 people with temporary jobs as part of Jobs for Peace initiative announced by the Government of Afghanistan.
