About Kabul Municipality:



The Kabul Municipality (KM) has received a grant from the World Bank toward the cost of the proposed Kabul Municipal Development Project (KMDP). That builds upon the now closed Kabul Urban Reconstruction Project (KURP) which financed upgrading similar to the works envisaged under the proposed project.

The World Bank is supporting government of Afghanistan to enhance social protection for poor and vulnerable people during the current “relief” phase of the COVID-19 crisis through REACH project. REACH project is designed to deliver the emergency social protection to the population catchment that is proportional to the likely size of the COVID-19.

The REACH project will provide household support based on the geographic coverage of three different implementing agencies already managing relevant projects (CCAP, EZ-Kar, and KMDP)


The REACH project targets all households in Afghanistan with incomes of US$2 per day or lower, twice the national poverty line. The broad coverage, covering an estimated 93 percent of targeted communities, is required to assist households to withstand the impacts of the temporary disruptions to daily economic lives caused by the COVID-19 crisis and to encourage them to follow the social distancing norms.

The REACH comprises approximately two-thirds of the country. The remaining areas will be covered under the CCAP. Communities here refer to a combination of CDCs and Gozar Assemblies/Councils who will be the locus for implementation delivery of the Project.
