Audit of USAID/Afghanistan’s Water, Agriculture, and Technology Transfer Program.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: Yes
USAID/Afghanistan awarded a $19.8 million cooperative agreement to New Mexico State University to implement the Afghanistan Water, Agriculture, and Technology Transfer Program. The program’s main objective is to increase the opportunity for Afghans to access information and knowledge on appropriate technology, provide the tools and mechanisms for policy and institutional changes that would enhance the management of the supply and demand of water resources, and develop a legislative framework for tenure and rights over private and common land in the rural areas. According to the mission, the creation of a water-basin model through a participatory, nationwide data-gathering effort is another aspect of the program that will have great impact on Afghanistan’s arid landscape.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Afghanistan’s Afghanistan Water, Agriculture, and Technology Transfer Program is improving the legal framework for property rights, strengthening local institutions, and building local capacity to undertake analysis of water, agriculture, and other rural development issues.
