The Regional Programs Coordination Office (RPCO) was established in the MRRD compound in 2007 as one of the largest rural support program in terms of scope and coverage area, working across the county. The demand for rural development motivated the program management to operate in several sectors that created a stage for diversified activities, whereas all other national programs of the ministry are engaged in their specific sectors. In addition, the Program responds to expressed needs of the rural people, who require various basic services (community based infrastructures) which no other single rural development program has addressed so far. The program development efforts are focused on helping the poor in dealing with many of the risks they face in their lives  – such as unemployment, low house hold income, low agriculture production, poor irrigation systems, lack of accessibility to market, lack of education and health facilities, lack community based disaster risk reduction infrastructures and insufficient potable water.

Under the portfolio of the Regional Programs Coordination Office, a MoU is signed between Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) and Ministry of Agriculture Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL) in October 2018 to implement the project in seven provinces (Kabul, Parwan, Logar, Baghlan, Balkh, Nangrahar and Herat) in 4 Sectors (flood affected and rainfall harvesting structures, roads for community access, drainage and sanitation, and water supply) till December 2020. This project is financed by International Fund for Agriculture and Development (IFAD).
