Project: Cotton and Alternative Crops Program
Location: Southern Afghanistan
Client: United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
Duration: 4 years
CADG worked in partnership with USAID to provide farmers in the region of Southern Afghanistan with an alternative crops program. Our responsibilities included:
- Providing technical assistance to farmers
- Conducting research on crop varieties.
- Rehabilitation of processing facilities.
- Identifying export markets for Afghanistan cotton.
One of the key highlights of our achievements was the successful rehabilitation of a local cotton factory that was previously inoperable. As a result of the improvements, the farmers were able to process and press cotton into internationally accepted standards.
