January – December 2020

















The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan is characterized by a long running conflict and increasing natural disasters, occurring in the backdrop of declining economic conditions due to erosion of livelihoods and employment opportunities. These undesirable factors are fuelling displacements, reducing access to food and agricultural production, and driving unemployment. The ability of vulnerable populations to cope with the crisis has been increasingly exhausted. In 2020, FAO aims to increase the resilience of agriculture-dependent livelihoods, while addressing the immediate acute food insecurity needs.
