The snowfall in Kabul has been a relief for the Afghan people. However, the snowfall is significantly delayed this year. What does it mean?


An ordinary afghan winter consists of an abundant amount of snow and sub-zero temperatures between December and March. Yet, several winter seasons with sparse snow causes concern


Afghanistan has grappled with drought and low amounts of rain- and snowfall. While the snowfall in Kabul is good news, the absence of snow earlier this winter serves as a reminder of our commitment to address the impacts of climate changes.

For the Afghan people, this entails an increased focus on adaption, resilience, capacity building and preparedness.

Increased focus on preparedness

Together with the Afghan people, we are constructing check dams, wells and irrigation canals. This is crucial for agriculture and for enhancing livelihoods in rural Afghanistan.

We assist farmers with certified seeds cultivated to withstand drought, floodwaters and rising temperatures.

Furthermore, we have introduced Emergency Groups in many schools in Afghanistan. Through this measure, teachers and students can acquire knowledge about preparedness, first aid, search and rescue, as well as other essential skills in light of earthquakes and landslides.

Together, we can confront the upcoming challenges arising from climate changes.
