Helping Afghanistan's farmers to adjust to the impacts of climate change
Description: Afghanistan is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate change; including beautiful, mountainous Panjshir province. The Panjshir valley starts about 2 hours’ drive from Kabul and winds north into the Hindu Kush. Isolated and poor, its 140,000 people, mostly farmers, get by on a string of small-scale farms by the side of the river or hacked into the mountainsides. Their lives have always been hard, but they are made even more difficult by desertification and regular floods. Across Afghanistan, UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation project staff work closely with vulnerable communities to identify exactly what their problems are and the best ways to solve them. They combine UNDP’s global expertise with their own local knowledge — and their passion for development. “Dealing with climate change is very important,” says Sulaiman, UNDP’s Regional Manager for our Climate Change Adaptation project. “My staff in Panjshir think of their work as not just a job but also a service to these communities and our country in general.” Read more about the US$10m project made possible by the Global Environment Facility-Least Developed Countries Fund. Being put into action by Afghanistan’s Ministry of Agriculture, with support from UNDP: https://medium.com/@UNDPaf/undp-and-climate-adaptation-in-panjshir-4d827d217376

Improving Aid to Stabilize Conflicts: The Afghan Case
Description: In the past decade, the United States and its allies have invested billions of dollars on assistance in Afghanistan, Iraq and other conflict zones. In Afghanistan, the U.S. Agency for International Development has implemented projects to help stabilize the country as part of a counterinsurgency strategy. Making sure that such efforts are effective is vital to national security and efficient spending. To evaluate such stabilization-related assistance, USAID commissioned a study by the Empirical Studies of Conflict Project at Princeton University. Join USIP on June 21 for a first look at the results, which can inform more effective stabilization work in future conflicts.

12 days locked in the dark, then hope I UNICEF
Description: “I have a lot of things in my heart and they are bad and good, but a lot of bad.” 11-year-old Dounia from Afghanistan had to escape the conflict with her family and their journey was harrowing. Smugglers in Turkey kept her family locked in the dark for 12 days. “Nobody can say something to them, if they [do] say, they kill them.” Dounia feared that the smugglers would just take their money without helping them. After two lost years, she now lives safely in Greece with her family, and she’s back at school learning Greek and English. “We want to be safe like Europe people. Why they are safe, why? Why we are not safe?” Dounia still wonders. If you believe #AChildIsAChild, share this video to stand with refugee and migrant children. We are calling for a six-point plan to keep refugee and migrant children safe.
