• Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund

    Following the fall of the Taliban regime at the end of 2001 and the return of international aid agencies to Afghanistan, it was agreed with the interim government early on that a pooled financing mechanism was needed to ensure a coherent and coordinated reconstruction effort. Consequently, the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF) was established in April 2002 with support in the first year from 20 donor countries.

    An insight into the restoration project of one of Afghanistan's most impressive historic sites: the Herat Citadel -- dating back to Alexander the Great. We look at the importance of Afghanistan's historic sites and the restoration work being commenced by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in Afghanistan. Ajmal Maiwandi, the Chief Executive Officer for the trust, based in Kabul, explains a little bit about the history of the Herat Citadel, and why it is important for the future of Afghanistan to make culture and history accessible in this way. Abdul Ghaffoor Sheikhzada, Director of the National Museum of Herat (housed inside the Citadel), gives a tour of the site explaining some of the more detailed points of historic interest.

With support from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF), OFWMP works to improve agricultural productivity in project areas by enhancing the efficiency of water use. OFWMP has established 59 irrigation associations across western Afghanistan, which have greatly reduced water-related conflict in villages and ensured the proper maintenance of newly built irrigation canals. The Khushk-e-Baad-e-Saba canal stretches 3,315 meters and benefits more than 300 families. While previously only 75 percent of Haji Abdul Karim's farmland was cultivable, he now farms all of his land. The canal has increased the village’s arable lands by more than 15 percent, making farming a more viable economic source of livelihood, and transforming the village into a more prosperous, happier, and greener place.
