Kabul, 6 May 2014 (TOLO) - The number of people affected has risen to more than 90,000 in 14 Provinces, according to the Afghan government. Meanwhile for survivors, concerns over the management of supplies and financial donations continue to grow, as it becomes clear that long term support will be needed.


Global Witness called on the Afghan government and Parliament to strengthen the country’s proposed mining law to help ensure mining is a force for development in the country, rather than conflict and corruption. The call comes as Afghanistan’s Parliament sits to debate this crucial legislation.  



To provide policymakers with opinions from those directly supporting and delivering Afghan development, ENNA and BAAG surveyed their members from 1st to 15th October 2013, presenting them 12 questions about conditionality of development aid to Afghanistan.

The opinions on this issue are well divided, but a convincing majority doesn’t believe conditionality would be an effective measure. That is the main conclusion of the survey.

Though responses showed an equal 50/50 split to the initial question of whether placing conditions on development aid to Afghanistan could be good, 77.8% felt there were disadvantages to the principle.
