Abstract:

This discussion paper reflects on over 10 years of community-based neighbourhood upgrading in Afghanistan's cities. It shows the huge potential and value of citizen engagement in upgrading, promoting a culture of civic responsibility and community solidarity. It demonstrates that these experiences provide a solid foundation for up-scaling to a national urban solidarity programme to improve municipal governance and service delivery in Afghanistan's cities.
