Australia Afghanistan Community Resilience Scheme (AACRS)


Titre : Australia Afghanistan Community Resilience Scheme (AACRS)

Pays : Afghanistan

Date : AACRS began in May 2014 and is expected to conclude in early 2018

Présentation The AACRS is a collaboration between the Australian Government, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, and five non-government organisations (NGOs) : ActionAid Australia, the Aga Khan Foundation – Afghanistan, CARE Australia, Oxfam Australia, and World Vision Australia

AACRS NGOs will implement a range of activities, including : * training farmers in improved agricultural approaches and providing innovative technologies ; * establishing links to markets and supporting private sector growth ; * building the capacity of local civil society organisations ; and * rehabilitating irrigation infrastructure.

The AACRS will improve the resilience of rural Afghan communities by promoting innovative solutions to livelihood challenges. Target communities and families will benefit from more and better agricultural production, institutions that are more aware of people’s needs and rights, and higher incomes. The AACRS focuses on helping the most vulnerable in communities, particularly women, to access more economic opportunities. AACRS NGOs are working with at least 95,000 men, women and children throughout ten provinces.

Financement : The Australia Afghanistan Community Resilience Scheme (AACRS) is a new Australian Government rural development program in Afghanistan with a budget of up to $25 million over four years..
