The Eshiteghal Zaiee – Karmondena (EZ-Kar)
is a Project of the Afghan Government supported by the World Bank, involving multiple ministries, to respond to the long-term settlement and economic development of the returnees and their host communities.
The EZ-Kar proposes to mitigate the enormous pressure caused by the displacement crises, while also enhancing the opportunities it presents for economic development in urban area. Thus EZ-Kar fits within the international context of integrating short term humanitarian approaches with longer term development perspectives. The project focuses on the successful integration of the returnees in the 13 cities with highest number of IDPs and returnees. There is a strong emphasis in the project on developing market supporting infrastructure, and creating the supportive enabling environment required to generate short- and medium-term economic opportunities as well as removing impediments to the re-integration of IDPs and returnees to the host communities. These measures in the long run will support local institution building, inclusive growth and social inclusion.
The project supports the integration of Afghan Returnees in the cities through a multi-Agency implementation approach, and with the short to medium term measures required for increased economic opportunities for integration of Afghan returnees in the cities under program coverage. These measures include, among others, (a) provision of civil documents and information services to Afghan refugees in Pakistan; (b) creation of job opportunities through labor intensive public works; (c) removal of regulatory red tapes (such as cumbersome processes for applying for construction permits), (d) provision of and improvements to market infrastructure at municipal and Gozar levels.
Together, these measures are expected to strengthen an enabling environment for economic opportunities in the target cities where there is a high influx of displaced people which will facilitate new business activities by establishing business Gozars and market-based infrastructure at Gozar level, create immediate short-term jobs, and promote economic opportunities.
The EZ-Kar project will reach Afghan refugees living in Pakistan and citizens within Afghanistan in 13 cities in Afghanistan namely: Kabul, Jalalabad (Nangarhar), Kandahar City (Kandahar Province), Herat City (Herat Province), Puli Khumri (Baghlan), Maimana (Faryab), Ferozkoh/ Chaghcheran (Ghor), Khost Matun (Khost province), Asadabad (Kunar), Kunduz City (Kunduz Province), Mehtarlam (Laghman), Parun (Nuristan) and Taloqan (Takhar). The EZ-Kar being an inter-ministerial approach to the displacement crises, with multiple implementing agencies (IAs), such as the Ministry of Finance (MoF), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Economy (MoEc), Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR), the Kabul Municipality (KM), and the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) would improve inter-ministerial coordination and collaboration to address the IDPs and returnees’ crises effectively.
