Abstract: "The economy of Afghanistan is based on agricultural production and the majority of the rural population comprises small subsistence farmers. The management of the water resources of the country is vital for economic growth and to meet the people's needs of food and fiber. Lack of data and the unreliability of available data make it difficult to understand and assess the current situation of the water sector in Afghanistan. This paper presents an analysis of the status of water resources management in Afghanistan and identifies steps necessary to maximize the use of the available water resources to enhance crop productivity and environmental sustainability."
