The Project: The ARTF funded NHLP is a follow-on project to the Horticulture and Livestock Project. The National Horticulture and Livestock Project (NHLP) was approved by ARTF Management Committee to provide support in an amount of US$ 100 million, with an initial allocation of US$ 50 million, to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The project contributes to the overarching goal of increased productivity and overall production of horticultural products and improved animal production and health. The technical strategy for achieving this objective is based on the delivery of extension and investment support through strengthened systems. The National Horticulture and Livestock Project (NHLP) has three components: (1) Horticultural Production, (2) Animal Production and Health, and (3) Implementation Management and Technical Assistance Support. These activities are implemented in 100 focus districts spread over time as conditions warrant in up to 22 target provinces.
The Project contributes to the Agriculture Production and Market Development Program –the National Priority Program 2 (NPP2).
