The Missing Link:

It has long been established that there is a positive correlation between education and economic development. Education reduces poverty through labor productivity gains, and brings improvements in other areas such as health and gender equality.Thus a sound workforce development policy and the generation sustainable employment with in emphasis on youth must be the backbone to attain national goals. 

Human Rights In Extractive Industries

IIn 2010 the Pentagon estimated that Afghanistan's untapped mineral wealth could top $1 trillion dollars. It is a finding that can reshape the country's economy and serve as an anchor for its future development. This is especially relevant given the fact that declining foreign aid is reducing economic growth. Vast reserves can also have negative consequences for the country if they are not managed according to the best interest of Afghan citizens. In fact, research findings suggest that countries' with high mineral wealth perform worse…

Although Women constitute more than 50% of Afghanistan 's population, they have had no role in country's key decision-making processes. After the collapse of the Taliban laws were passed to encourage Afghans to accept the principle of "gender equality" and to ensure, through positive discrimination, that women were given leadership roles. As a result women have been given position in the parliament and in provincial councils and even in the executive body.

Take the Guns away

Afghans continue to be exposed to all manner ofhumiliation and abuse at the hands of gunmen.The rule of law is effectively non-existent throughout the country, and consequently, a culture of impunity dominates.
