MOVE is implementing the Citizens’ Charter Afghanistan Project (CCAP) contracted by the NSP  in Nimroz and Badghis provinces.

Project Goal

Citizens’ Charter Afghanistan Project will seek to address key limitations of line agency efforts, NSP to date, and respond to financial constraints to national development investments. First, it brings together the rural and urban community level work under one umbrella. Second, consolidating service delivery under the Citizens’ Charter brings many advantages to Afghanistan’s development planning. This transition means that there will be increased emphasis on linking CDCs with local government institutions and ministries following a systems-based rather than project-based approach. To provide improved services, the Citizens’ Charter will set a threshold of core infrastructure and services that the government will provide to all accessible communities over the next ten years.

Project Objectives

To improve the delivery of core infrastructure and social services to participating communities through strengthened Community Development Councils (CDCs). These services are part of a minimum service standards package that the Government is committed to delivering to the citizens of Afghanistan. As such, the Citizens’ Charter is a promise of the partnership between the state and communities. It is a foundation stone for realizing the Government’s development vision. The program is a whole-of-government effort to end fragmentation, brings people together to collectively address their development needs and contribute towards unity. The Charter is a commitment to provide every village and urban communities in Afghanistan with basic services, based on community prioritization.                       


Rural infrastructure communities will have at least one of the following services (depending on the gap analysis, community prioritization and accessibility):

1)            Basic electricity, Basic road access

2)            Small-scale irrigation infrastructure


Key staff replacement and social organizer recruitment based on vacant position and ratio of the program especially in remote and insecure areas.

Based on good coordination and relationship with Taliban and communities successfully formation and election of cluster CDC at Jawand and Maqar districts as per the operation manual of the program.

Contract renewal of; rental house, vehicles, and replacement of Nimroz provincial office according to the plan.

Winterization of provincial and districts sub-office is done on time and good condition as per instruction.

As per contract milestone the target which is fixed was very high to achieve as per field security condition for the third and fourth instalment we can only request the mentioned instalment in October which only paid Nimroz amount by end of December and still wait for Badghis invoice and the finance department tried to finance CCNPP from other projects for a long time.

As result, all the project expenses; “Staff Salaries, offices rent, vehicles rent, etc.” Nimroz paid and cleared up to December 31, 2018, except three months’ staff salaries of Badghis province.

Close cooperation and active coordination are ongoing with Provincial Management Unite (PMU), RRD staff and relevant deportment of sectoral Ministries.


Many villages in the Badghis and Nimroz province received positive information and feedback on the benefits of the CCNPP from current and past members. In addition, the program facilitates according to the CCNPP operation manual in a very remote area of Jawand, Maqar and Charborjack districts but, still the CDCs as per security and culture issues have problems with participation of female in the program; formation of the grain bank at CDCs have good impact but fewer people participated for the fact, most of the people of Badghis and Nimroz is not in good economic condition.
