Priorities and plans
DAARTT has extensive capacity for construction and renovation of buildings and aims at continuing its contribution to Afghan development in this area.
According to the National Education Strategic Plan, there is a need for 13,000 school buildings. DAARTT would like to contribute towards this goal.
To strengthen the rule of law in Afghanistan, there is a need for numerous buildings in the justice sector and DAARTT is ready to continue its engagement in this.
DAARTT is also ready to help provide clinics and other works to help strengthen access to health services where it is most needed.
Centres and shelters for returning refugees are needed on an urgent basis. DAARTT is ready to engage with partners for their construction.
DAARTT has developed a considerable capacity for monitoring of construction projects. Third party monitoring represents a key investment by donors and has proved a valuable instrument to ensure quality and timeliness of projects.
DAARTT would welcome opportunities to help ensure availability of proper school and other infrastructure needed in Afghanistan through project monitoring.
As pointed out in DAARTT reports, there is a significant need to strengthen government capacity for planning, design, contract management and quality assurance of school construction projects.
DAARTT has made a large number of recommendations which would address the shortcomings in a systematic way and is ready to work with the government and donors in implementing these.
