AFGHANISTAN NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY (ANDS)

The Interim Afghanistan National Development Strategy (I-ANDS) was the product of twelve-months of intensive consultations between the Afghan government and a wide array of stakeholders including tribal and religious leaders, the private sector, Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs), and the international community.

The document outlines the Government of Afghanistan's policy objectives and analyses the obstacles to their achievement. It is an evolving strategy that is regularly reviewed and updated according to the needs of Afghanistan. Along with the I-ANDS, the Afghanistan Compact serves as the primary mechanism for coordinating future Afghan and international reconstruction. Launched on January 31, 2006 at the London Conference for Afghanistan, the Afghanistan Compact marked the formal end of the Bonn Process and established a five-year framework for cooperation between the Government of Afghanistan and its international partners.
