Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas Livelihood Development Program.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) are semiautonomous areas along the border with Afghanistan, where the Pakistani Government has minimal control. FATA are frequently used by the Taliban for incursions into Afghanistan and for a residence in exile. Citizens there have less access to education, health care, clean water, and sanitation compared with residents in other regions in Pakistan.
The most immediate need in FATA is improvement of livelihoods. The FATA Livelihood Development Program (FATA-LDP) will be a community-based program that will (1) create jobs, increase incomes, and teach employable skills; (2) revitalize community infrastructure and essential services; and (3) support established businesses and develop sustainable new enterprises. The Governments of the United States and Pakistan have determined that this assistance is vital to achieving joint security, political, and development objectives.
USAID/Pakistan intends to provide up to $300 million over 5 years to meet the program’s objectives. The program will be implemented in two regions of the FATA by the Academy for Educational Development and by CHF International; each implementer will receive $150 million in funding.
OIG will conduct two separate audits of the program to determine whether the USAID/Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas Livelihood Development Program, administered by the two implementers, is improving livelihoods in FATA.
