CDP-SEW promotes stability through temporary employment in targeted districts to reduce the number of unemployed Afghans joining the insurgency. Project activities are implemented in close coordination with coalition forces engaged in the clear, hold, and build phases of counterinsurgency (COIN) operations to pave the way for a smooth transition. CDP-SEW works in Badghis, Daykundi, Farah, Ghazni, Ghor, Hilmand, Hirat, Kandahar, Khost, Kunar, Laghman, Logar, Nangarhar, Nimroz, Paktika, Paktya, Uruzgan, Wardak, and Zabul provinces. The focus in the south and east, during the clear and hold phases of COIN, is on quick-impact programs that provide short-term livelihood opportunities in support of broader stabilization efforts. Activities include rehabilitation of village reservoirs, drainage canals, and irrigation systems. The program also supports the transition from stabilization to longer-term development through activities such as the repair of irrigation systems to increase agricultural production, rural farm-to-market and feeder road construction, drainage system rehabilitation, and small-scale municipal infrastructure construction or repair.
