Sustainable Economic Development and Employment Generation Program (SEDEP II)
In Afghanistan, GIZ is implementing the Sustainable Economic Development and Employment Generation Program II (SEDEP II), a follow-up to SEDEP. It focuses on the problem that the private sector (including farms) in the north of Afghanistan is limited in its ability to generate sufficient opportunities for income and employment for the population. The primary objective of the project is, therefore, to increase employment and incomes in selected economic sectors (nuts, milk, poultry, horticulture, wheat) promoted in the north of Afghanistan. A secondary objective is to support the economic activity of women. The measure focuses on the four northern provinces of Badakhshan, Balkh, Samangan and Takhar.
