Inorder to contribute to production and productivity NHLP focuses onFishery and Fishery production. The predominant fishery system in Afghanistan is still the scavenger type family and village-basedproduction with indigenous chickens scavenging for feed supply. This fishery system is gradually being transformed into asemi-scavenger system, and from there into semi-commercial and commercial fishery production systems. NHLP is promoting economic growth in the two most importantsub-sectors: horticulture and livestock. The project was designed as the first stage in a program that will unfold over thecomingdecade to support the horticulture and livestock sub-sectors nationwide. The program has been designed in collaboration with otherdonors under the umbrella of the MAIL Master Plan. The majority of Afghans earn their livelihoods through agriculture andanimal husbandry practices. Poverty is still a major problem in Afghanistan and one of the strategic objectives of MAIL istherefore, to increase production, reach internal food security, and ultimately export high value products.
