Afghanistan: Postconflict Multisector Program
sector: Finance, Public Sector Management, Transport | country: Afghanistan
This validation agrees with the lessons identified in the project completion report (PCR) and finds them valuable in financing postconflict development projects. The ownership by the government of the reform process and the leadership the government shows are absolutely critical in a postconflict scenario. This was demonstrated in the case of the leadership shown by the finance minister, which was not always matched in the Postconflict Multisector Program Loan (PMPL) sectors. Given the multisectoral nature of the program and the utilization of the proceeds in various reconstruction and development projects, strong oversight mechanisms needed to be in place at the outset to ensure optimal use of and reporting on funds.
