The Kaifiat project: strengthening capacity in a complex context between emergency relief and development
March 2007 - March 2008

The KAIFIAT project (‘Kaifiat’ is the Dari for ‘Quality’) was a continuation of the work carried out by Groupe URD on the Linking Relief Rehabilitation and Development project between 2004 and 2007. The objective of the project was to help improve the quality of operations carried out by international and national actors, in order to contribute to improving the living conditions of the Afghan population.

In keeping with Groupe URD’s mandate and its methodological approach based on the learning cycle, this project included research, evaluation and training activities. Experiences were shared and analysed with the aim of improving the quality of service delivered to the Afghan population.

Working in close cooperation with Afghan NGOs, French and international NGOs present in Afghanistan, Afghan ministries, United Nations agencies, donors, etc. the KAIFIAT project focused on:

  • strengthening the capacity of actors to analyse, design, implement and monitor project;
  • collective learning via the sharing of experiences, good practices and knowledge management.
