The Multi-Input Area Development—Global Development Alliance (MIAD-GDA) is a partnership between USAID and the Aga Khan Development Network to improve the quality of life in Afghanistan's Badakhshan Province by strengthening health, education, livelihoods, and governance. The project links Afghanistan’s public and private sectors to foster sustainable social and economic development. USAID and Aga Khan are each investing $30.5 million to fund this GDA.
This partnership advances two broad components:
The 1st strategic objective is to improve the quality of life for residents and improve social and economic development:
The 2nd strategic objective is to establish a model for a sustainable, replicable Financing facility for regional social and economic development. This Strategic Objective is guided by two economic-related results: funds invested in viable economic drivers, and a Trust Fund mechanism established.
