About CARD-F:

The Comprehensive Agriculture and Rural Development Facility (CARD-F) works on behalf of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GOIRA) to deliver sustainable economic development in the rural economy at the district level. CARD-F seeks to provide a means of designing, coordinating, funding and implementing high-impact interventions through an integrated Economic Development Package (EDP) for targeted districts. EDPs address issues of markets, agricultural production, processing and infrastructure in an integrated manner to promote growth and build on- as far as possible- existing programs and projects. CARD-F functions under the auspices of an Inter-Ministerial Committee comprising: Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL), Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) and the Ministry of Finance (MOF) under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Counter Narcotics (MCN). CARD-F has successfully completed its Phase 1 and its Phase 2 will last until the end of 2018 and during this time CARD-F plans to cover all Provinces in Afghanistan. CARD-F is also a sub-component of the National Priority Program 2 (NPP2). While presently externally funded by the Government of United Kingdom (DFID) and the Government of Denmark (DANIDA), other donors such as USAID, European Union and JICA have shown keen interest in funding CARD-F beyond its Phase 2.
