The objective of RADP-S is to improve food and economic security for rural Afghans in Kandahar, Helmand, Zabul, and Uruzgan provinces. The focus is to improve productivity and profitability for targeted value chains selected from the wheat, high-value crop, and livestock sectors. This sustainable agricultural development program supports the consolidation of licit economies to fuel economic growth, including providing alternatives to poppy cultivation. RADP-S achieves this objective through a relatively long-term agricultural value chain approach designed to address sustainability as well as by supporting policy, legal, and regulatory development.
