Germany helps 390 Afghan civil servants improve their skills in public administration
Today, 390 civil servants from 24 line departments and 6 district administration offices and from the municipal offices of Kunduz successfully passed 12 months of training in public administration skills run by the Independent Administrative Reform & Civil Service Commission (IARCSC). The trainees took part in courses in administrative management, human resources management, financial management, procurement, in English language and computer skills. The courses were funded by the German Government; technical support came from Afghan-German Cooperation.
The administrative coaching course was part of a broader project that combines long-term training for civil servants with donations of office equipment. The aim of the program is for staff at 41 line departments to gain essential administration and management skills. Until recently, many of the line departments operating in Kunduz city and in the district administrative departments lacked adequate office equipment and basic management skills to carry out their daily tasks professionally. Better office facilities, improved management systems and more qualified staff now enable the provincial administration to provide better services for the 978,200 citizens in the province.
To congratulate the successful course participants, Ghulam Rabani Rabani, member of Provincial Council; Abdul Jalil Hamid, Director of the IARCSC in the North-East; Mohammad Zahir Nazm, Director of Education; Manfred Meyer, BMZ Commissioner for Kunduz and Baghlan, Eng. Sebghatullah Nazari, Director of Rural Rehabilitation and Development and Kunduz Afghan-German Cooperation representatives attended the ceremony.
As part of German Cooperation with Afghanistan, the RCDF is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. In six Northern provinces of Afghanistan, the RCDF supports the development priorities of the Afghan partners at the provincial and district level, while providing training and coaching programs for civil servants. With its broad range of activities, the RCDF aims to increase Afghan ownership of the development process, strengthen Afghan state.
