Asian Development Bank and Afghanistan: Fact Sheet

ADB has approved loans for Afghanistan totaling almost $1 billion and grants amounting to $3.3 billion since 1966.

ADB is delivering vital assistance to improve the lives of the people of Afghanistan. Travel by road and air has been made easier; electricity is more widely available; farm incomes are more secure; and there is greater accountability in the public sector.

Future ADB assistance to Afghanistan will continue a focus on the country’s energy, transport, agriculture, natural resources, and governance. Support to these sectors will include capacity and institutional development, as well as sector reform.

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Afghanistan as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
