Afghanistan | Agricultural livelihoods and food security in the context of COVID-19
Aug 2021

This report shares an analysis of the effects of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in the agri-food system in Afghanistan. It analyses the results of a field assessment conducted between 7 and 26 February 2021.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is implementing a project to contribute to data collection and analysis linked to COVID-19 to inform evidence-based programming in selected countries. The objective is to assess the effects of COVID-19 in the agri-food system, which includes crops, livestock and fishing, food supply, livelihoods, and food security of the rural population at the national level. Information is collected from primary sources of the production process: producer households, traders or marketers, inputs suppliers, extension officers, and key informants.

A first-round of data collection was conducted in 2020, followed by a first report published in March 2021. A third-round is planned before the end of 2021.
