Afghanistan: Planning and Policy

In the summer of 2017 I was hired through the Urban Development Support Project of the World Bank to serve as a Senior Policy Advisor to the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. This was a tremendous honor and I am very happy with the work I have been doing under this project to support the urban sector of Afghanistan.

This page and its sub-pages is designed to support that work and the Afghan urban sector as a whole.

H.E. President Ashraf Ghani has greatly increased attention and support to the urban sector in Afghanistan since 2014. As a result, a series of new laws and policies have been passed, and many more are in development. So one purpose of this site is to provide common access to the English-language versions of some of these laws and policies (and in come cases the Dari versions as well).
