Climate action in Afghanistan

For communities in Afghanistan, the climate crisis isn’t a distant threat – it’s already here.

Nestled within the majestic Hindu Kush mountains, Afghanistan is a country which holds a rich tapestry of history and culture, woven with an agricultural heritage that has sustained its people for millennia. Today, around three quarters of the population still depend on the land for their food and income.

But in recent years, the catastrophic impacts that climate change is having on food security, livelihoods, and safety in Afghanistan has been exacerbating an already dire humanitarian emergency which unfurled following the Taliban takeover in 2021.

To tackle the impacts of this climate emergency, Afghanaid has been investing in local knowledge to build resilience in Afghanistan for more than a decade. Their new film explores how these initiatives have driven community-led climate action – and how you can join Afghan change-makers as a beacon of hope for a brighter future.
