The format of the conference can only be decided once a new Afghan Government is in place. However as a co-host, the UK is planning to facilitate opportunities for civil society to influence and shape the discussions and outcomes of the conference, both before and during the event itself. As part of this we will be encouraging engagement by both male and female representatives of Afghan civil society.</p><p> </p> more like this

Almost 35,000 people have now been able to buy materials to repair their homes. There is still more to do, but this mechanism is a step in the right direction.
