Over 30 years of conflict have left Afghanistan one of the poorest countries in the world. While progress has been made over the last decade, Afghanistan has a long way to go to achieve the MDGs and has agreed a 5 year extension until 2020. DFID’s vision is for a more peaceful, stable, viable and prosperous Afghanistan. In support of this, the UK has committed to maintain current levels of assistance (£178 million per year) until at least 2017.
