Organizational Context:           

Local Governance Project-Afghanistan (LoGo) is a new project, building upon the lessons from UNDP’s Afghanistan Sub-National Governance Programme (ASGP). Through LoGo project, the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) and UNDP will jointly address the top three priorities of IDLG which are: 1) service delivery; 2) accountability; and 3) clear functions and mandates. The project builds on a new theory of change aimed at improving service delivery by enhancing the accountability and transparency of the local governments to the women and men of Afghanistan and building the capacity of the local governments to plan, budget and monitor service delivery effectively with the ultimate aim of increasing the legitimacy of the government and the trust between the state and society.

The GIRoA, with UNDP support, will focus on the following areas:

  1. Subnational state institutions, (Provincial Governor Offices, District Governor Offices, Provincial Sector and Technical Services department, Provincial Council, Provincial Development Committees, Moustafiats, Department of Economy), enhance their capacities in outreach, planning, monitoring and budgeting for accountable and transparent service delivery.  
  2. Municipalities deliver services in a more accountable and participatory manner
  3. Accountability of local governance enhanced through civil society oversight organizations/groups
  4. Central level government institutions develop and implement policy guidelines which improve local government accountability and service delivery.

The project will work with the relevant government ministries that cover subnational planning and budgeting, monitoring and evaluation and representative bodies as well as civic society.  These include the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG), the Ministry of Economy (MoEc), and the Ministry of Finance (MoF) and ensuring complimentary with the other programmes, especially USAID, GIZ, UN Habitat and the World Bank. 

Under the direct supervision of the project manager, the component lead (Civil Society), leads output 3 of the project, provides guidance and exercises supervision over staff working in the component and is responsible for achieving the expected results.
