Strategy and Finances

Partnership Framework

The ARTF Partnership Framework and Financing Program (PFFP, formerly known as the Financing Strategy) sets the overarching strategic allocation of the Fund, including for the Recurrent Cost Window, the Investment Window, and the Bank-executed Advisory Services Implementation Support and Technical Assistance (ASIST) and Anti-Corruption and Results Monitoring Action Plan (ACReMAP) windows. Investment Window financing aligns with the Afghanistan National Peace and Development Framework and its associated National Priority Programs, with programs clustered in three broad groupings: Governance and State Effectiveness; Poverty Reduction, Service Delivery, Citizens’ Engagement and Social Inclusion; Economic Growth and Job Creation’

The ARTF Steering Committee approves the PFFP and annually reviews its progress, endorsing updates on the recommendation of the ARTF Strategy Group. The current PFFP was approved at the June 25, 2018 meeting of the ARTF Steering Committee.
