ADB is one of the key players in the development of transportation in Afghanistan, specifically the road networks connecting the country’s outlying remote provinces with each other, the capital of Kabul, and neighboring countries. Connectivity is generally perceived by the local populace living along national transport corridors as a source of convenience, mobility, and prosperity that links them to opportunities, health and education facilities, and livelihoods.

This paper discusses how land acquisition and resettlement in Afghanistan during road infrastructure planning, design, and implementation can be improved.
