Delegates from 60 countries will attend an International donor conference in Kabul, Afghanistan on Tuesday.

The conference is expected to adopt a paper outlining the handover of power to Afghan security forces by 2014. However, doubts have been raised over whether this can be achieved.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai, will also request that the international community allocates the majority of funding over the next two years to a list of more than 20 priority programs.

In return for more control over aid budgets, Karzai's government is pledging to improve financial management and tax collection, and fight corruption. But, the international community remains uneasy about giving up control of funding, following nine years of war which has seen many troop losses, and billions of dollars spent.
