2019 could be 'make or break' for Afghanistan, says top UN aid official

26 November 2018

Drought in Afghanistan has left more than 3.6 million people “barely surviving” and displaced some 250,000 people from rural areas, the UN’s Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan said on Monday, warning that 2019 could be “make or break” for the country’s people.

In an interview with Daniel Johnson from UN News, on the eve of an international conference to stand with the people of Afghanistan, Toby Lanzer insisted that positive developments are happening in the country, providing the basis for a “more stable and better future”.
