The issue paper on Provincial Planning and Budgeting in Afghanistan, presented to the public in July 2016, examines public financial management processes and stakeholders. Due to the absence of a clear subnational governance framework, initial reforms with regard to public financial management focused on strengthening the central government. This approach fails to effectively identify and finance local priorities, to build local capacity and increase local participation.
