Health & WASH

Health and WASH has been a priority area for APWDO since its establishment and we continue to view this area a top priority. APWDO has been playing its role in this field through various projects, both independently and through the kind support of various donor agencies.

Disaster Response

Ecosystem services, soil water content, and conditions and rangelands are most affected by climatic hazards and changes. The effects on food crops and livestock are similarly high. Irrigated and dry land farmers and livestock herders are the most susceptible to the impacts of weather hazards and climatic changes.

Early Recovery & Resilience

APWDO’s presence at community level puts it in a unique position to rapidly respond to early recovery needs during any emergency situation. Understanding the local context, community vulnerability, experience and expertise in linking early recovery with community resilience is a priority area for APWDO.

Economic Growth & Rural Development

APWDO is committed to contributing to the economic growth of Afghanistan through designing and implementing projects and programs that are responsive to the local needs and offer greater potentials for economic development of the country.

Environmental Protection for Community Resilience

Harsh winters cause serious sufferings for the poor populations and their economic activities get almost stranded during the winter season. The focus of interventions, in this area to-date, has been on immediate humanitarian assistance as post disaster response.

This remains our core area of focus as we believe the promotion of the culture of volunteerism can play a significant role in social cohesion and nation-building in Afghanistan.
