The SARD Program was approved by the Steering Committee for the Development Cooperation of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 8th November 2010. It consists of two main components of agriculture (Art. 15 - AID 9465.01.3) and rural development (UNDP - AID 9465.04.6), plus two additional components of “Local Funds” (AID 9465.03.5) and “Expertise Funds” (AID 9465.02.4). It aims to support the rural populations to achieve a sustainable development and an increase of their subsistence income base. On 30th May 2014 the above-mentioned Steering Committee approved the revision of the agriculture component. This component is now focussed on two Districts of the Province of Herat and the implementation of agriculture activities will be based on the decentralized “Extension system” at provincial level. The rural development component has been terminated through the finalization of 32 interventions such as irrigation systems, wells, works for protection of the territory and cultivable areas, rural roads and bridges, micro hydro-power stations and income-generating activities for women. Additional details of each component of the entire SARD Program are here below described in “Activities”. read more close
