How is the national and international media covering UNDP’s work in Afghanistan? We enjoy favourable media coverage thanks to our good work of improving people’s lives. Our areas of work are environment, livelihoods, governance, rule of law, gender and health.
On our “In the News” page you will see radio and TV shows, newspapers and an array of weblogs covering our work and initiatives and feature exclusive interviews with our senior officials and experts.
Our focus is helping Afghanistan build and share solutions to the challenges of Environment, Livelihoods, Gender, Rule of Law, Governance and Health. UNDP has been working in Afghanistan since 1966 in close partnership with government, civil society and other national and international partners.
We advocate for change and connect the Afghan government, NGOs, civil society and other partners to the knowledge and resources they need to help the Afghan people build a better life
