KABUL (Pajhwok): An overall review of the uplift projects implemented in the past 16-year period has been kicked off to identify the total numbers and the average levels of effectiveness, an official said on Sunday.

Mukhtar Ghafarzoai, the executive director of the Urban Development Institute, during an exclusive interview said the process has recently started in which the uplift projects in 34 provinces across the country between 2002 and 2016 would be examined.

The purpose of the survey is to find the effectiveness of these projects and to identify the change brought about by such projects in the lives of the urban population.

The survey will be conducted by 320 employees who will interview approximately 30,000 members of the development council and 300,000 common people, including women. They survey will take five months to complete and will cost $1million.

Ghafarzoai added that with the completion of this survey it will be known which projects were implemented and what type of uplift projects are needed the most by the people.

“The projects will be identified through Geographical Identification System (GIS) which will help in keep the record of previous uplift projects and will be available in the system for the future,” he added.

Ghafarzoai further said that “The result(s) of this survey will enable us to know how many imaginary uplift projects existed during the period and how many development projects had been conducted in line with the demands of people and what were its social and economical impact.”

The results of the survey will be handed over to the president and would also be available to the policymakers for use in future policy formations.
