Målet med Afghanistan-uka er å plassere Afghanistan øverst på den norske dagsorden. Afghanistankomiteen er initiativtaker og koordinator for uka som blir gjennomført med støtte fra Fritt Ord og Norad.

 In June the Norwegian commission on Afghanistan launched its report “A good allied – Norway in Afghanistan 2001-14”. Evaluating Norway’s total efforts to Afghanistan as well as providing an insight into how and why decisions and strategies were made, the report is an important contribution to the debate on the international community’s role in Afghanistan.

The report concludes that the development aid to Afghanistan has failed in supporting the development of a democratic state. International funding has largely been linked to the military efforts to counter insurgency and stabilize Afghanistan. However, 23 % of the Norwegian Development assistance has been channeled trough Norwegian NGOs resistant to be linked to the military campaign. What are the lessons learned from the Norwegian NGOs, and how can lessons from the development sector be transformed into recommendations for future engagement in fragile states? Norwegian Afghanistan Committee (NAC), Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and Chr Michelsens Institutte (CMI) invites colleagues from the NGO community to share experiences, discuss results and ensure lessons learned.

The workshop is open for Norwegian NGOs with programs in Afghanistan
