During Project Design
During Project Implementation


The prolonged state of conflict in Afghanistan has resulted in large-scale deterioration of the civil aviation infrastructure and depletion of the skilled manpower. In addition to lack of maintenance, the deterioration was further accelerated by the heavy damage inflicted during decades of civil strife and the recent military operations. A massive rebuilding effort is required to bring back the civil aviation infrastructure and institutions to a standard that assures safe and efficient civil aviation services in the country. The main objectives of the technical assistance are to (i) prepare a Civil Aviation Master Plan (CAMP) to provide the framework and time bound action plan for sustainable and effective development of the civil aviation sector in Afghanistan; (ii) undertake feasibility studies for rehabilitating selected major domestic airports and other regional airports and prepare an investment project suitable for ADB financing; and (iii) prepare an implementation program to strengthen the capacity of civil aviation sector institutions in Afghanistan.
