The Role of Civil Society in Monitoring Afghanistan’s Extractive Industries 

The Center for Sustainable Economies project will empower civil society organizations in Afghanistan by developing tools for socio-economic monitoring, conducting a baseline survey of measurable indicators, establishing a public forum to promote accountability and publishing findings and recommendations. The project will also develop a multi-stakeholder data sharing system to share results and facilitate information flows. In partnership with Integrity Watch Afghanistan (IWA), USIP will develop survey instruments to capture socio-economic and environmental indicators; recruit, train and supervise field teams; develop and launch a shareable, web-based database; and facilitate conflict-sensitive dialogue among all stakeholders. The project will focus on activities in and around the copper and iron ore mines in Afghanistan‘s Logar and Bamyan provinces, respectively.
