Eye on Afghanistan

May 6, 2013

"All the stories of our projects [in Afghanistan], some bigger in scope than others, have at their core the common aspirations of a people yearning to make their country a better place. Their dreams and hopes dovetail with UNDP’s core values and mandate in the areas of poverty reduction; democratic governance; crisis prevention and recovery; and environment and sustainable development.

It has become clear that the Afghan people are eager to learn and explore, and take on new challenges. Support from across the world—from governments, aid organizations and corporations—has been vital in that effort. And it is making a difference, as we demonstrate in the pages of the Afghan Development Advocate."

Ajay Chhibber, Assistant Secretary-General, Assistant Administrator of UNDP and Director of UNDP's Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific

Message from Rebeca Greenspyn
Rebeca Grynspan:

"UNDP believes that the future of Afghanistan, its development and security, is in the hands of its own proud people. Indeed, we look forward to our own drawdown date, when our large-scale presence is no longer needed. Until then, we will continue to work with the Government and the people of Afghanistan to ensure a secure and peaceful future for all."
