Background: The objective of the Regional Agricultural Development Program –West (RADP-W) is to improve food and economic security for rural Afghans in Badghis, Farah, and Herat provinces. The focus will be on improving the productivity and profitability of targeted value chains in the wheat, high-value crop, and livestock sectors. This sustainable agricultural development program will support the consolidation of licit economies to fuel economic growth and provide alternatives to poppy cultivation. RADP-West will achieve its objective through a longer-term agricultural value chain approach designed to address sustainability as well as by supporting policy, legal and regulatory development.
