USAIDâ€™s Regional Afghan Municipalities Program for Urban Populations is highly focused to enable municipal governments to meet the challenge of improving service delivery to citizens in target municipalities rapidly. By demonstrating their capacity to produce tangible improvements in quality of life, Afghan governments will win the trust and support of its people and increase its legitimacy. RAMP-UP is absolutely critical to the success of the USGâ€™s strategy to promote a more capable, accountable and effective government that serves the people and can eventually function with limited international support. The dual objectives of RAMP UP are to build municipal capacity on a sustainable, long-term basis while immediately producing visible and tangible improvements in service delivery and economic development.
