Reconstructing Agriculture in Afghanistan View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    The book raises critical questions relating to both humanitarian intervention and development agendas in crisis states. It supports a growing literature that interrogates past and present interventions, but does so by putting food security at the heart of both short- and long-term responses to crisis. In this it addresses two main issues. First, to review the current understanding of agriculture and food security issues in Afghanistan. Second, to bring together lessons on the nature and practice of interventions in support of food security and agriculture, particularly in the post-2001 period. The findings are a testimony to successful interventions, and explore wider implications of building food security under conditions of political instability. The book brings together papers by key practitioners and food security analysts with knowledge of the agricultural and political economy of Afghanistan. It makes an ongoing contribution to the theories of post-war rehabilitation in fragile states, providing an important reference for operational agencies and researchers. Published in association with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
