Sustainable Livelihoods and Social Development (SLSD) Afghanistan


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Sustainable Livelihoods and Social Development (SLSD) Afghanistan

Pays/Région : Afghanistan

Numéro du projet : 7F-90009.01

Phase en cours : 15.05.2013 - 14.05.2016

Partenaires chargé de la mise en œuvre : The Liaison Office (TLO), registered as an Afghan NGO with the Ministry of Economy.

Due to three decades of subsequent conflicts and wars the south-eastern region of Afghanistan has been trapped in a vicious circle of violence and poverty. Accordingly, the poverty level is significantly higher than the national average of 35.8%, namely 47.9% in Khost and 60.6% in Paktia. Livelihoods options are very limited and consist mainly of subsistence agriculture, animal husbandry, local trade, and few government functions. Remittances are an important source of income. Disputes around land and water are a main source of conflicts, due to unclear legal frameworks and weak conflict resolution mechanisms. Access to basic services is very limited. Compared to the national literacy average of 40% m/20% f, the rate in the target region is 25% m/1.5% f.

The South-East of Afghanistan was particularly deprived of development efforts of the last ten years and before. The Liaison Office (TLO) rooted in this region is a capable and experienced Afghan partner to coordinate community based initiatives in close cooperation with formal and informal actors, women and men. Improved land and water management and resolved conflicts around these resources will contribute to reduce poverty, strengthen local governance, and human security.
