Strategies and Goals

Main sector
Programme Objective in Afghanistan

Welthungerhilfe strengthens the capacities of rural and urban communities for a self-determined improvement of their food and nutrition security.

Afghanistan has suffered from protracted conflict for over 35 years and many parts of the country continue to be marked by instability. There is also a high incidence of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and landslides and the United Nations estimates that around 290,000 people were affected by natural disasters in 2017, while around 400,000 were displaced within the country due to conflict. Food and nutrition insecurity continues to be widespread and over 70 percent of children in some regions of the country are suffering from undernutrition (stunting) and the country is ranked in the ‘serious’ category of the 2017 Global Hunger Index.
