LOTFA Annual Progress Report 2014
A year of transitions would best describe Afghanistan and LOTFA in 2014. While significant security challenges remain, the Afghan National Police (ANP) and the Afghan National Army (ANA) successfully assumed full responsibility for the country’s security from the coalition forces. This transition has led to a change in the international aid environment, with security partners drawing down or shifting emphasis and with an increased focus on development. Political transition ushered in a Government of National Unity as a result of democratic elections that aimed to achieve equal opportunities for both men and women, and security and safety to enable full citizen participation.
