Asian Development Bank & Afghanistan
Asian Development Bank | March 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Afghanistan as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The 2007 Afghanistan Human Development Report ranks the country as one of the poorest in the world, and the poorest nation in the entire Asia and Pacific region. Despite significant security and development gains since the 2001 ouster of the former Taliban regime, the people of Afghanistan continue to suffer widespread insecurity; weak governance; inadequate health care, education, and other public services; and gender inequality. Lack of employment opportunities and poverty continue to condition the lives of a large segment of the population.
