Overview

The overall objectives of the project are to support the efforts of the government of Afghanistan to sustainably improve the food security and reduce poverty through capacity development, research, and technology transfer in the agriculture sector.
The project is focusing on the province of Urzgan while conducting some trials using the “mirror approach” in other provinces, and addressing the problem of capacity development at the national level. This approach ensures continuity of work and collection of useful data even if the project has had to abandon some of the experimental sites owing to security risks.
