Afghanistan measures poorly in both the Logistics Performance Index (150th in the World) and the Doing Business Trading Across Borders indicator (177th in the world). Inadequate infrastructure has been a constant complaint of businesses voiced in many recent surveys. Afghanistan is also highly vulnerable to climate change, and internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, and their host communities may be particularly vulnerable to such changes. The ARTF financed EZ‐Kar Project supports the basic principles endorsed by government of Afghanistan that (i) humanitarian assistance should transition to permanent solutions based on sustainable development as rapidly as possible; (ii) 100 percent registration for all undocumented returnees, on a fast track basis is ensured; (iii) government will provide facilitation services for those returnees voluntarily relocating or re‐establishing their businesses in Afghanistan; and (iv) a “whole of community” approach should be followed wherever possible.
