Description To prepare the Kabul Distribution Network Rehabilitatoin Project to be funded through PFR 2 of MFF 0026-Energy Sector Development Investment Program
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy After decades of conflict, only 9% of the population has access to electricity and per capita electricity consumption is merely 21 kWh. The Afghanistan National Development Strategy (2008) aims to supply at least 65% of households and 90% of nonresidential establishments in major urban areas, and at least 25% of households in rural areas by end-2010. Following Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Country Partnership Strategy for Afghanistan 2009-2013 which also prioritizes energy sector development, ADB approved DABS and the Ministry of Energy and Water's request to fund a portion of the outstanding works to rehabilitate the Kabul distribution network.
Impact Larger and most cost-effective supply to consumers in Kabul resulting in sustainable economic development.
