Afghanistan’s first ever Strategic Grain Reserve inaugurated

SGRFunded by Australian government, the first ever Strategic Grain Reserve (SGR) has been established in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The complex was inaugurated by Afghan Agriculture Minister Mohammad Asif Rahimi and World Food Program (WFP) Country Director for Afghanistan, Claude Jibidar, on Tuesday.

The complex has a capacity to hold 22,000 metric tons of wheat and represents the first phase of a country-wide SGR initiative, involving the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Bank.

“This first facility will help address the problems of the vulnerable people in Afghanistan, who are often affected by emergencies like droughts or floods,” said Minister Rahimi.

The initiative seeks to build new infrastructure facilities and renovate existing ones to millions of tons of food.

In times of emergency, the initiative will ensure that nearly two million people have access to food for up to six months.
