In 2002, under an agreement with the Government of Afghanistan, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) began to restore and rehabilitate a number of significant historic buildings and public open spaces in the city of Kabul. In concert with a broad range of development initiatives ranging from agricultural productivity to telecommunications undertaken by the other agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), AKTC undertook a range of conservation and urban regeneration efforts, living condition improvements, community development programmes and planning initiatives in war-damaged neighbourhoods of the Old City of Kabul. A similar initiative commenced in the Old City of Herat in 2005.
