World Bank*

Interim strategy for the period FY2012-2014:The World Bank’s support to Afghanistan over 2012-14 will be based on supporting the delivery of some of the most important national priorities.It is also grounded in helping the government to transition from security and development dominated by the international community to one led by the government of Afghanistan by the end of 2014.The strategy will also help promote domestic sources of growth and jobs, which will be all the more critical as aid-driven growth decreases with the drawdown of the international military.

European Commission*

Under the EU-Afghanistan Country Strategy paper, resources are earmarked to 6 areas of cooperation, 3 of which are priorities, or ‘focal’ areas and 3 of which are ‘non-focal’. Focal areas are- Governance, Rural development, Health and non-focal areas: are Social protection, Mine clearance and Regional cooperation. Of an €610 million sum for the initial Multiannual Indicative Programme (MIP) for the period 2007-10 (MIP-I), €542 million were used in 3 priority areas namely governance (42%), rural development (28%) and health (20%). The €68 million balance was allocated for social protection (3.9%), de-mining activities (3.6 %) and regional cooperation (3.6 %). The second Multiannual Indicative Programme 2011-13 (MIP II) included a €600 million financial allocation. MIP II prioritised rural development (34.3%) governance and rule of law (41%) and health and social protection (22.2%) with regional cooperation (2.5%) as a non-focal area. In line with high level political commitments, the new Country Multi-Annual Programme under preparation (2014-20) aims towards at least comparable budgetary levels. In such preparation, the Tokyo Mutual Accountability Framework (TMAF) provides the basic reference for the Government and the donors. EU assistance is aligned with the Afghan government's priorities and its national priority programmes (NPPs). The EU subscribes to the New Deal for engagement with fragile states – on donor harmonisation and aid effectiveness – endorsed by Afghanistan and adopted by donors in Busan (2011).
