About Citizen Charter/MRRD:
The Citizens’ Charter is a National Priority Program (NPP) of the National Unity Government (NUG) that was officially launched on September 25, 2016. The Citizens’ Charter is an inter-ministerial, multi-sectorial NPP, where Ministries have collaborated to provide basic services to rural communities. The key service delivery ministries involved are: Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), Ministry of Education (MoE), Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL), with oversight by Ministry of Finance (MoF). MRRD has a key role and will be responsible for infrastructural development and strengthening CDCs and Cluster CDCs. The Community Development Councils (CDCs) will be linked to sub-national government to improve communication and coordination from the community to the district, provincial and national levels – increasing Government visibility and accountability. The Citizens’ Charter is an important foundation for the Government’s reform agenda, contributing to a number of priority areas including: Ensuring Citizens’ Development Rights; Building Better Governance; Reforming Development Planning & Management and Developing Partnerships. The Citizens’ Charter intends to improve service delivery by ensuring minimum service standards, provide greater responsiveness by the Government to the people and increase the level of public satisfaction with services. The Charter commits to deliver the following core services across the country over a 10 year period: • Basic health services • Basic education access • Safe drinking water and sanitation • Improved farming technologies and the delivery of extension services • Rural connectivity with tertiary roads • Rural renewable energy
About EQRA Project:
EQRA aims to increase equitable access to primary and secondary education, particularly for girls, in selected lagging provinces, and to improve learning conditions in Afghanistan.’ The project introduces a shift from monitoring only enrolment of students (which also include permanently absent students) to focusing on bringing children into school and their attendance. EQRA will: (a) focus on the 17 most lagging provinces in terms of girls’ attendance in schools; (b) direct the system toward tracking and rewarding retention of students, especially girls, by tracking attendance of students as opposed to enrolment (the difference between actual attendance and enrolment is estimated between 30 percent and 35 percent); and (c) focus on strengthening the governance of general education to improve the service delivery transparently and strengthen accountability, an area which was not supported systematically under the previous operations.
MRRD, in coordination with MoE and MoF, is responsible for the overall school construction. Implementation takes place through CDC/CCDC, using community procurement. Funds for school construction are transferred from MoF directly to CDC/CCDC accounts as grants, after MRRD assessment and disbursement request. In areas where CCDCs exist, and where the CCDC boundary is relatively aligned to the school catchment areas, implementation will take place through CCDCs. In areas where implementation cannot take place through CCDCs, implementation will follow Joint Projects as per the CCAP manual, implemented by CDCs within the catchment area of the relevant school.
