Capacity building for over 120 civil servants in Badakhshan
With support from Germany, more than 120 civil servants from various line departments completed six months of IARCSC training in English, management and computer skills in Faizabad. The qualifications will help local government provide more efficient services for the population in Faizabad and the surrounding districts.
The project received funding and technical support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the “Regional Capacity Development Fund” (RCDF) in Badakhshan. As part of Afghan-German Cooperation, the RCDF is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. In six Northern provinces of Afghanistan, the RCDF supports the development priorities of the Afghan partners at the provincial and district level, while providing training and coaching programmes for civil servants. With its broad range of activities, the RCDF aims to increase Afghan ownership of the development process, strengthen Afghan state institutions on the subnational level and promote transparency and inclusiveness.
