Title: Agricultural livelihood support to acutely food insecure people in Afghanistan
Description:

One in three people in Afghanistan is experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity due to the ongoing conflict, COVID-19 pandemic, high food prices and rampant unemployment. 

This food insecurity situation is expected to be deteriorated in the short-term. In addition to the widespread insecurity, the upcoming harvest in September is expected to be substantially below normal due to the current drought, triggered by the La Niña weather event. 

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is working in Afghanistan with partners and the government to provide necessary livelihood assistance through agricultural inputs and agronomic training, as well as and life-saving cash assistance to the most vulnerable including farmers, pastoralists and families, to increase the resilience of their livelihoods and improve food and nutrition security.
