Natural Resource Management and Peacebuilding in Afghanistan

Natural Resource Management and Peacebuilding in Afghanistan
  • United Nations Country Team in Afghanistan, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). June 2013
  • This report investigates the ways in which the management of land, water, minerals, forests and drugs are linked to instability and insecurity in Afghanistan. Its aims are two-fold: first, to suggest ways that the government and the international community can maximise the peacebuilding opportunities that come from better natural resource management and, second, to encourage the international community to introduce safeguards in their existing projects to ensure they do not inadvertently exacerbate conflict. Chapter 2 is specifically dedicated to water issues.
