  • Fragile Future: The human cost of conflict in Afghanistan

     Emmanuel Tronc and Anaide Nahikian presents 'Fragile Future: The human cost of conflict in Afghanistan', part of the Humanitarian Action at the Frontlines field analysis series. Fragile Futures examines the humanitarian, political, societal, and economic dimensions that make the protracted conflict in Afghanistan intractable and precarious for civilian populations. The report is based on field visits to numerous regions in Afghanistan in July 2018—which included interviews and consultations with a variety of actors, including political stakeholders, humanitarian agencies, and populations affected by conflict—as well as a review of recent and relevant literature.  The purpose of this analysis is to (1) provide a current assessment of the conflict, drawing from field interviews and an indepth assemblage of various reports and resources, (2) examine the interconnected and interdependent interests fueling the conflict, and (3) suggest that if these dynamics persist in the way they have for decades, recent elections and peace talks will represent yet another setback for Afghan communities and a peaceful future for the country.

  • World Bank: Afghanistan Development Update

    Afghanistan’s security environment is continuing to deteriorate. The increased conflict appears to be holding back business and consumer confidence from recovering fully from the impact of the security transition in 2014. The annual economic growth rate is projected to reach 2.6 percent in 2017, increasing very slightly from the figure of 2.2 percent recorded in 2016. Industry is projected to grow by two percent, while services is projected to grow at 3.3 percent. Following a substantial increase last year (six percent), growth in agricultural output is expected to decelerate significantly to around 1.5 percent.
