Title: FAO: Afghanistan: FAO appeals for $36 million to urgently save rural livelihoods and avoid massive displacement
Description:

The Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, today (September 13, 2021) called for urgent assistance to help save Afghanistan's next wheat harvest, keep life-sustaining farm animals alive, and avoid a deterioration of the country's already severe humanitarian crises.  

FAO is seeking $36 million to speed up its support to Afghan farmers and ensure they will not miss the upcoming winter wheat planting season, and to assist the agriculture-based livelihoods of 3.5 million vulnerable Afghans until the end of the year.
