WFP, Secondment

01.12.2014 - 28.02.2017

The country suffers from one of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the world. Over half of children under 5 years are chronically malnourished (stunted) and one-fifth of Afghan women of child-bearing age are underweight. The operating landscape in Afghanistan will become increasingly challenging over the medium term as international troops withdraw, foreign aid levels decline, and presidential and parliamentary elections remain contested. Growing insecurity resulting from these pivotal transitions could further impede humanitarian access to a third of the population is food-insecure and experiences high levels of undernutrition due to protracted conflict, frequent natural disasters, low development, weak institutional capacities and volatile food prices. Food insecurity and undernutrition must be addressed to respond to humanitarian needs and promote economic growth and stability in the country.
