The European Union has announced a contribution of €3.3 million to Afghanistan to support local communities facing climate change.

Raffaella Lodice, the EU representative in Kabul, said during a meeting with Sarajuddin Haqqani, the acting Minister of Interior, that this assistance will cover seven provinces in the country.

Raffaella emphasized that climate change challenges vulnerable communities worldwide, including Afghanistan.

These funds are intended to be allocated to the internally displaced persons committee.
The EU representative in Kabul considers community preparedness for climate change crucial for well-being and resilience, saying that these contributions aim to help Afghan citizens withstand the impacts of climate change.

According to reports, the EU’s aid will benefit 8,100 vulnerable families in Dykundi, Faryab, Ghazni, Kapisa, Paktia, and Takhar.

Climate change has significantly affected people’s lives in various regions of the country, with recurrent droughts exacerbating hunger and poverty.

The United Nations and Afghanistan’s National Environmental Protection Agency have conducted assessments, revealing that Afghanistan ranks among the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate change.

This designation underscores the urgent need for international cooperation and sustainable measures to address the environmental challenges faced by the Afghan population.

The consequences of climate change in Afghanistan are far-reaching and demand immediate attention. Droughts have threatened food security and exacerbated poverty, highlighting the necessity for comprehensive efforts to mitigate the impacts and build resilience in this vulnerable nation.
