Summary This Government's vision for Afghanistan is fully consistent with our Islamic and cultural values as stated in our Constitution. In the next fifteen years, we aim to ensure that Afghanistan meets all of its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). If we realize this vision, we will all but eliminate extreme poverty and hunger in Afghanistan. ... To achieve pro-poor growth while eliminating the criminal economy, we aim to make simultaneous strategic investments across the security, governance and economic pillars. While our priorities in each of these areas are presented in the I-ANDS and the 5-year strategic benchmarks of the Afghanistan Compact, we will focus in particular upon those areas that enhance our current and future productivity, including electricity, roads, irrigation, institutional and human capacity building, creating an enabling environment for private sector development, and protecting the rights of the poor. As we target our investments in these areas, we will seek to support likely areas of accelerated economic growth, including rural development (agriculture and rural industries), the management of state assets, mining and extractive industries, and transit. By creating a secure, politically stable and economically supportive environment for growth, we will enable the private sector to thrive and employ our population, and generate the public revenues that will enable the Government to work towards our MDGs. To achieve the MDGs by 1400 (2020), we must make significant progress in security, governance, and the economy in the next five years, and for that we will need international political and financial support. For that reason, the Government of Afghanistan agreed the Afghanistan Compact with the international community in 1394 (2006). The I-ANDS presents the strategy through which the Government of Afghanistan will fulfill its obligations under the Afghanistan Compact. In so doing, it also aims to fulfill the requirements of an Interim- Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (I-PRSP)
Notes "May 2006."
"Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) are prepared by member countries in broad consultation with stakeholders and development partners, including the staffs of the World Bank and the IMF."
