Hawk Vision is implementing mid-term evaluation of the Kabul Municipal Development Program (KMDP) with the support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Ministry of Economy (MoEc). The Kabul Municipality is implementing Kabul Municipal Development Program (KMDP) on behalf of the Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan with a duration of six years (October 31, 2013 – September 30, 2019).  The primary focus of the KMDP is to increase access to basic municipal services in selected residential areas of Kabul City and strengthen municipal finance management of Kabul Municipality. The Kabul Municipal Development Program (KMDP) is expected to benefit over one million people throughout the capital city through services provided in some 3,020 hectares of government-owned land. To date, more than 530,000 people have benefited directly and over 200,000 indirectly, including students and staff of several schools and institutions of higher education. About three quarters of the beneficiaries are women and children.

The project started on December 03, 2017 and ended on December 31, 2018. The main objective of the project was to evaluate the direct and indirect impacts of KMDP on Kabul citizens from the start of the project up to present. It included study of the KMDP components including roads construction, electricity, water supply, drainage system, garbage collection, recreation facilities, municipal taxes and emergency services. The study figured out that people are satisfied from the implementation of KMDP. The project has a strong positive impact on the country at large because of the infrastructure development.  Many roads and streets are constructed since the beginning of the project. Street lights have been installed on some roads to provide lighting at nights.
