Results from the June community engagement mapping exercise show that collectively community engagement activities are prevalent in all provinces within the country, with focused engagement in Kabul and Nangarhar and weaker engagement in hard-to-reach areas in the western and northern regions of Afghanistan. The survey did not map community engagement activities in the following areas: evidenced-based, community-led advocacy; and behaviour and social change communication.
According to the survey responses community engagement in Afghanistan should focus on: engaging with communities in harder-to-reach areas and locations impacted by high levels of displacement and signiﬁcant returns; promoting community structures and the incorporation of local capacities; establishing accountability to affected populations (AAP) focal points at local levels; and advocating for dedicated resources (personnel, funds) to support the mainstreaming of community engagement
