About Independent Directorate of Local Governance, Deputy Ministry of Municipalities, Cities Investment :

About IDLG: The Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) was established in August 2007 pursuant to a decree by the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, with the mandate of transferring civilian responsibilities of the then Ministry of Interior (MoI) to an independent entity. Furthermore, in accordance with the Presidential Decree, the responsibility of supporting the Provincial Councils was delegated to IDLG, which was then also designated as the only entity responsible in Afghanistan for local governance. IDLG was established for the purpose of strengthening good governance, provision of services, consolidating stability, accountability, and transparency at sub-national levels through strong and capable sub-national government administrations. The core mandate of the IDLG includes: • Improving local governance to ensure access to development, stability, and security; • Providing good governance at the local level; and • Supporting local administration and ensuring public participation in the decision-making process. The mandate of the IDLG has then been divided into 4 core areas: • Policymaking: developing sub-national governance policy and revision of laws, regulations, and bylaws in accordance with this policy; • Institutional development: supporting institutions, capacity building and supporting sub-national administrations; • Inclusive Governance: supporting the participation of stakeholders and citizens in the sub-national governance processes; • Supporting: facilitating the implementation of national programs through sub-national governance entities. The IDLG is headed by a General Director, of equivalent rank as a Minister. He/She is supported by Directorates of Staff, Information and Public Awareness, Monitoring and Evaluation, and Internal Audit. The IDLG is then divided into the 3 Deputy Ministries of Municipalities (DMM), Administration and Finance (DAF), and Policy (DMP). About CIP CIP, together with the ongoing KMDP and UDSP (and the anticipated EZ-Kar Project), would provide a well-integrated and sequenced program of institutional development, training, and investment financing that are vital in supporting Afghanistan’s urban development needs. The UDSP is strengthening the institutional foundation for strategic development planning at the city level and enabling the preparation of a pipeline of municipal investments at five PCCs. As a follow-on operation, the CIP would be designed in two phases using the SOP as follows: SOP I ($50m, 5 years) would provide financing for priority investments, while expanding SDF preparation to include four additional cities, and SOP II ($150m, 5 years) would provide financing for catalytic investments in nine cities. In SOP I, CIP would set-up and mobilize the mechanism for performance-based financing for critical municipal investments. SOP I would be implemented by IDLG over five years and would have four components.
