Kandahar Food Zone Program

The Kandahar Food Zone program (KFZ) is a three-year (July 2013 – August 2016), $ 27,659,804 million project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by International Relief and Development (IRD). KFZ is designed to identify and address the drivers of poppy cultivation in target districts of Kandahar Province through grants for activities that improve community infrastructure, strengthen alternative livelihoods, support small businesses and strengthen the Ministry of Counter Narcotics (MCN) capacity to manage its own alternative development (AD) programs.
 
An extension of KFZ has been granted to IRD to continue contributing to the sustained reduction in poppy cultivation in two target districts (Zhari and Panjwayi) through the implementation of three components: Alternative Development that targets existing and new perennial crops, improve other crops yields and maintain greenhouse management; Irrigation Management System to enhance and rehabilitate the existing irrigation infrastructure and water management capability; and Government Coordination and Capacity-Building of local government staff in the areas of rural development and agriculture. KFZ has six cross-cutting components: Gender, Communication, M&E, Environment, Synergy and Sustainability in order to promote behaviour change among poppy growing farmers, improve agriculture related technical practices and technologies and rehabilitate/construct irrigation infrastructure with the aim of expanding a licit economy.
