ActionAid Afghanistan implemented REALISE project funded by Australian Afghanistan Community Resilience Scheme (AACRS) through ActionAid Australia from 2014 to 2018. The final evaluation of this project was initiated and TOR in this regard was generated by both ActionAid Afghanistan and ActionAid Australia in Oct 2018. This report summarises the results of this evaluation.
The project aimed to enhance the resilience of rural communities to shocks and seasonal constraints to achieve food and livelihoods security of vulnerable families living 97 communities in 6 districts of 3 provinces of Afghanistan namely Balkh (Kaldar, Dawlatabaddistricts), Jawzjan (Shibergan and Khammab districts) and Bamyan (Yakawalang and Punjab districts).
