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.

In the last decade, Afghans have made remarkable strides, including the largest increase in life expectancy and largest decreases in maternal and child mortality of any country in the world. To sustain and expand these results, progress must be broad-based and mobile technology must be accessible to all Afghans—men and women alike.
