    Humanitarian action plan for Afghanistan

    The 2009 Humanitarian Action Plan for Afghanistan represents a major step towards a coherent and prioritised strategy to alleviate the pressing humanitarian needs of the Afghan people. The Plan aims to meet the immediate needs and build the resilience of those most vulnerable by natural disasters, lack of access to basic social services, increasing food insecurity caused by rising prices, the ongoing armed conflict and the worsening security situation. In a country where poverty and low levels of development are widespread, the Plan acknowledges the need to define boundaries for humanitarian action and to target assistance according to identified priorities.
