Environment
Afghanistanâ's natural landscape consists of plains, mountains, marshes, and forests. More than 80% of Afghanistanâ's land is threatened by soil erosion that has multiple negative effects on agricultural output, including increased salinization and de-vegetation.1 Contributing causes to the environmental crisis include armed conflict, population displacement, and misuse of natural resources.2 Afghanistanâ's climate is one of the most vulnerable to the consequences of climate change.3 Massive deforestation has created vulnerability to natural disasters. Droughts have decreased water resources and have caused emigration from Afghanistan.4 A huge part of the deterioration of the environment is the lack of government action and legislation to protect and preserve the environment. Over 70% of Afghanistanâ's forests have been cut down in the past 20 years.5 Deforestation has lead to ...See More an increase in floods and avalanches, and the nationâ's forests may be completely eradicated if the current trajectory is not changed.6 These forests are sources of fuel and important materials. With the agrarian nature of the economy, nearly 80% of the population is involve farming or herding and depend on agricultural production for their livelihoods.7 This damage to the land can severely limit the income of thousands of people and can keep the country in poverty.

Afghanistan's economy is recovering from decades of conflict. The economy has improved significantly since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001 largely because of the infusion of international assistance, the recovery of the agricultural sector, and service sector growth. Despite the progress of the past few years, Afghanistan is extremely poor, landlocked, and highly dependent on foreign aid. Much of the population continues to suffer from shortages of housing, clean water, electricity, medical care, and jobs. Criminality, insecurity, weak governance, lack of infrastructure, and the Afghan Government's difficulty in extending rule of law to all parts of the country ...See More pose challenges to future economic growth. Afghanistan's living standards are among the lowest in the world. The international community remains committed to Afghanistan's development, pledging over $67 billion at nine donors' conferences between 2003-10. In July 2012, the donors at the Tokyo conference pledged an additional $16 billion in civilian aid through 2015. Despite this help, the Government of Afghanistan will need to overcome a number of challenges, including low revenue collection, anemic job creation, high levels of corruption, weak government capacity, and poor public infrastructure.
