Diversification of agriculture
The project supported the Afghan partner ministries of Agriculture (MAIL) and Rural Development (MRRD) and other stakeholders in the northern province of Baghlan. GFA experts assisted in the improvement and diversification of farming, e.g. crop rotation, animal husbandry, strengthening of agro-based value chains and improved access to water for agricultural purposes. The project aimed at strengthening decentralized ministerial structures at provincial and district levels with a focus on supporting agricultural extension and social workers at the local level.
