Afghanistan's southern provinces have suffered some of the deadliest fighting in the country for the past 10 years, leaving behind damaged infrastructure and displacing thousands of families, according to the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA.

The Mission has been working with local media outlets to build support for Afghan-led peace and reconciliation efforts.

Last week, UNAMA and the Kandahar Press Club brought journalists from across Afghanistan’s southern provinces together to strategize on building peace in an area of the country where conflict has taken a heavy toll on normal life.
