The Regional Agricultural Development Program-North (RADP-N) is a sustainable agriculture development program that works in six provinces of northern Afghanistan (Jawzjan, Balkh, Samangan, Baghlan, Kunduz and Badakhshan) in support of U.S. Government and Afghan Government economic development objectives. RADP-N focuses on investing in increased sustainability and profitability of selected value chains for wheat, high-value crops, and livestock to provide food and economic security for rural Afghans in the targeted provinces. The program strengthens farmers' knowledge and skills concerning improved wheat, high-value crops, and livestock production techniques. These activities enable farmers to better market their products and generate more income for their families. RADP-North also engages the private sector to advocate for national policy reforms to catalyze growth in the sector.
