Afghanistan has made steady progress in areas such as basic services, education, clean water, infrastructure and electricity over the past decade, although great progress has been made in extremely important areas, particularly human rights and institutional strength.
These are the conclusions from a report that compiled more than 150 studies on the Central Asian country from 2008 to 2018, the results of which were analyzed in the offices of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in Germany.
The analysis shows that significant progress has been made in Afghanistan in the areas of access to education and training, medical care, energy and water. According to the document, however, there is a lack of institutional capacity building among the central and provincial authorities and of good governance. Compilation collected by the Afghan chain Tolo News.
