OVERVIEW

Agriculture plays a critical role in the lives of Afghan people, employing more than eighty percent of the population and contributing one third of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). However, current agricultural production falls far short of those historically achieved, and continues to lag significantly behind neighboring countries. USAID’s Regional Agriculture Development Program – North (RADP-North) activities support rural Afghans farmers achieve a more inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
