Audit of USAID/Afghanistan’s Strategic Provincial Roads—Southern and Eastern Afghanistan Road Project.

Country: Afghanistan
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID
Description:

The Strategic Provincial Roads Project is a 4-year, $500 million project designed to improve the quality of Afghanistan’s provincial roads in the eastern and southern regions of the country.

Under this project, USAID will rehabilitate 1,500 to 2,000 kilometers of provincial roads. The project also includes capacity building for Afghan construction firms and community outreach activities. USAID/Afghanistan hopes that rehabilitating the provincial roads will increase stability and security in eastern and southern Afghanistan. Improved roads are expected to:

  • Facilitate efficient movement of goods and people.
  • Increase access to government and social services.
  • Decrease ethnic divisions between regions.
  • Facilitate agricultural development.
  • Increase local capacity for sustainable road construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance.
  • Provide employment opportunities for the Afghan people.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Afghanistan’s Strategic Provincial Roads—Southern and Eastern Afghanistan Road Project is improving the quality of Afghanistan’s provincial roads in eastern and southern Afghanistan.
