Responding to Needs in Afghanistan: From Humanitarian Relief to Development

​This panel will take us back to the early autumn of 2021 and examine how the international donor community responded to the Taliban takeover.

Humanitarian assistance was rapidly scaled up to prevent the worst-case scenarios.

We will also look at the experiences of national and international NGOs who continued working in the rural communities, supporting basic services in health, education, and food security at a time where the international funding of the public sector in Afghanistan were cut off. How has the aid architecture developed over this last year? What opportunities, hurdles and gaps can be identified to moving from a humanitarian response to sustainable development?

Chair: Karim Merchant
