The Afghanistan Compact is the successor to the Bonn Agreement. It was the outcome of The London Conference on Afghanistan held by the government of Afghanistan, the United Nations and the international community in 2006.
The conference was chaired by Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The aim was to establish the framework for international cooperation for the following five years.
The Afghanistan Compact was launched on January 31st 2006, and marked the formal end of the Bonn Process, which had launched the reconstruction process in 2001, and reached its goal in the Parliamentary and Provincial elections in 2005.
The Afghanistan Compact serves as a basis for the next stage of reconstruction, which is to rely more strongly on Afghanistan’s own institutions. It is a political commitment of the participants, and not an actionable treaty.
