UNDP Afghanistan Mission Statement:
The Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIROA) and international community have been working together for well over a decade to build a national police force that can ensure safety and enforce law and order in Afghanistan for all citizens, men, and women, young and old, in rural and urban settings. The task is now for the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOIA) and to transform the Afghan National Police (ANP) from a counter-insurgency force into one that focuses on enforcing the rule of law and dealing with crimes and basic security needs of people in Afghanistan. Currently, levels of training remain low – the illiteracy rate among police is high and new recruits join the force after only a few weeks of basic training. Once on the job, there are few opportunities for professional development or training.
The establishment of LOTFA:
UNDP has operated LOTFA since 2002. LOTFA was originally created to support the establishment, payment, equipment and training of the police force in Afghanistan. The central goal was is to support the Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIROA) in achieving a paid, professional Afghan National Police (ANP) and staff of the General Directorate for Prison and Detention Centres (GDPDC) that deliver essential services to the Afghan people for improved public trust, safety and security and to support improved rule of law enforcement.
Based on consultations conducted between UNDP, the GIROA and donors it was determined that the scope of LOTFA should be expanded to include the entire justice chain (police, courts and prisons) and cover all institutions across the entire Rule of Law sector, with an increased focus on anti-corruption. Simultaneously, the LOTFA structure was revised to bring it more in line with international standards and best practices on Trust Fund management and administration.
Recent restructuring to LOTFA:
The new LOTFA Terms of Reference (TOR) and Strategic Framework approved in November 2018 has turned LOTFA into a multi-partner trust fund (MPTF) funded by twenty-three donors and established four thematic areas 1) Security, 2) Justice, 3) Anti-Corruption and 4) Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOIA)’s Payroll to support the government reform plans and evidence-based policy and programmatic interventions.
In 2020, the LOTFA Steering Committee approved a 4-year UNDP’s project, titled Community-Oriented Policing Services (COPS) which focuses on supporting the ANP to (1) increase the trust and cooperation between communities and the police through an enhanced Police-e-Mardumi (PeM) methodology, including piloting new approaches to allow the ANP to capture the voices of the community (2) the establishment of an enabling environment, allowing police personnel working in police districts to deliver improved community-oriented policing services meeting the demands and needs of the communities which they serve. The Project focuses on the Provincial Headquarters and Police Districts in Kabul.
