Afghanistan: Assistance to Address Food Insecurity and Undernutrition

The operating landscape in Afghanistan will become increasingly challenging over the medium term as international troops withdraw, foreign aid levels decline, and presidential and parliamentary elections are contested. Growing insecurity resulting from these pivotal transitions could further impede humanitarian access to a third of the population – 8.8 million people – that is food-insecure and experiences high levels of undernutrition due to protracted conflict, frequent natural disasters, low development, weak institutional capacities and volatile food prices. Food insecurityand undernutrition must be addressed to respond to humanitarian needs and promote economic growth and stability in the country.
