How we build state-citizen trust?

The Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Newly Merged Areas) and Balochistan was formed in August 2010 as a financing mechanism to mobilize resources from development partners to restore infrastructure, improve public services and livelihoods, and address factors that contributed to destabilization in the region. Since 2017, the MDTF continues to support Balochistan and KP, including the Merged Areas (formerly known as Newly Merged Areas) that officially became part of KP’s provincial jurisdiction – a milestone in advancing state citizen trust.

MDTF portfolio is structured across three complimentary areas that together strengthen state-citizen trust: good governance, livelihood development and improvements to public service delivery. As such, MDTF investments are designed and implemented under three program pillars: (I) Policy Reform and Governance, (II) Growth and Job Creation, and (III) Service Delivery. The investment portfolio also places a strong emphasis on two cross-cutting themes: gender-inclusive development and youth empowerment.
