Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund, tranches XVI and XVII


The multilateral Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF), which is managed by the World Bank, has been supporting the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan since 2002 in its efforts to restore civil society and bring stability to the country. The ARTF was created as a development tool to complement the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), which operated between 2002 and 2013 and attempted to use military means to ensure the restoration of the country, which had been destroyed following decades of civil war and terrorism. Even once the ISAF mission had ended, the measures financed using the ARTF were intended to carry on supporting the establishment of effective state structures in Afghanistan. The fund pooled donor contributions for Afghanistan’s recovery; it thus also served as a mechanism for coordinating both the Afghan government’s various development initiatives and those of the international donor community.
