The London Conference on Afghanistan took place on 4 December 2014. The conference was co-hosted by the governments of the UK and Afghanistan. The Conference provided a platform for the government of Afghanistan to set out its vision for reform and for the international community to demonstrate enduring solidarity and support for Afghanistan. The London Conference was the first opportunity for the new Afghan Government, the International Community, and wider stakeholders, to set out on the world stage our collective commitments to Afghanistan’s future after the 2014 drawdown of the International Security Assistance Forces.
In this conference the representatives of the government of Afghanistan renewed their commitment to the Tokyo Mutual Accountability Framework (TMAF) set out at the Tokyo Conference in 2012, and reached a consensus on a process to refresh the TMAF. In his speech, President Ghani outlined his ambitious agenda named “Realizing Self-Reliance: Commitments to Reforms and Renewed Partnership” to reform Afghanistan and deliver economic security by tackling corruption, maintaining the progress made on national security and placing women’s and civil rights at the heart of the country’s future prosperity.
The Participants welcomed and confirmed the Afghan Government reform programme. However, Participants recognized that this is a long term endeavor and that the Afghan Government will continue to have significant economic requirements that cannot be met solely by domestic revenues. To help ensure that Afghanistan remains on a path towards a more sustainable future for all Afghans, the International Community reaffirmed its Tokyo commitment of providing sixteen billion US dollars through 2015, and sustaining support, through 2017.
We will track the (anti)-corruption related commitments made by the Afghan government during the course of the London Conference and put up the results on the website for public information.
