National Comprehensive Agriculture Development Priority Program 2016 - 2020
This Program sets a strategic framework for the development and reform of the agriculture sector in Afghanistan over the period 2016-2020. It defines seven strategic priorities: 1) improving irrigation systems, 2) increased wheat production, 3) horticulture value-chain, 4) livestock development, 5) climate-sensitive natural resource management, 6) food and nutrition security, and resilience building, and 7) institutional reform. Overall, the fifth goal aims at ensuring that the Program only supports sustainable projects that depend on natural resources, create a green environment, conserve soil, water, and protect the biodiversity. Forestries are one of the pillars of this goal.
