Combating food insecurity and displacement in drought-hit parts of Afghanistan

Ghor is one of the Afghan provinces most severely affected by consecutive droughts over the past few decades, creating alarming food shortages and displacement. Authorities admit the government’s weakness has prevented the implementation of large-scale, long-term responses like water management projects. Instead, aid workers have turned to small-scale projects, which they admit cannot solve all the community's problems, but have had some positive impact.
