Background: The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL) is one of the key ministries of the Afghan Government with a mission “to restore Afghanistan's licit agricultural economy through increasing production and productivity, natural resource management, improved physical infrastructure and market development”.
Agriculture is one of the primary drivers of the Afghan economy with more than 80% of the population of the country engaged in this sector. During the last few years the MAIL has made tremendous progress in its service delivery to Afghan farmers, yet still there is much more the Ministry strives to achieve in this regard.
The General Directorate of Forestry and Rangeland Development (GD-FRD) is one of the biggest and most important directorates of the MAIL. This directorate offers services in Natural Resource Management (NRM), promoting Community Based NRM initiatives so that local communities can benefit, in a fair and equitable way, from the livelihood opportunities available to them through the responsible and sustainable management of their local natural resources (forests, rangelands and protected areas). However the GD-FRD is still in need of support and development so that it can mobilize funding, develop and coordinate projects, and thereby offer more focused and tailored services to local communities in a more timely, efficient and sustainable way. This is a key reason as to why the establishment of a Project Implementation Unit (PIU) is needed in the GD-FRD of MAIL.
The PIU is a new entity for the GD-FRD and is designed to support this Directorate towards providing better service delivery to local Afghan communities with regards to participatory and community based NRM initiatives as per the policy and regulations of the GD-FRD of MAIL, including the soon-to-be gazette Forest law, to meet the mission, vision, goals and objectives of the MAIL.
Under the overall direction of the Minister and Technical Deputy Minister of MAIL, the Program Coordinator will, in close collaboration with the General Director of GD-FRD, be responsible and will carry out the following tasks.
