Protracted conflict, high levels of insecurity, inhospitable terrain, severe climate and weak infrastructure have plagued Afghanistan for the past 30 years. Afghanistan’s humanitarian landscape is further complicated by several other factors: a majority of the population lives in hard-to-reach rural areas, more than one million Afghans are internally displaced by conflict, more than 250,000 people are exposed to natural disasters each year, and 9.3 million people are food insecure of which 3.4 million people are severely food insecure.
