With Afghanistan at a critical moment, the international community must remain fully committed to protecting and building on the country’s significant yet fragile human rights gains, said Amnesty International, ahead of a major donors’ conference on 23-24 November.
The Geneva Quadrennial Pledging Conference on Afghanistan, co-hosted by the United Nations and the Finnish and Afghan governments, will be attended by representatives of more than 70 countries and international organizations and agencies. The conference will set development objectives and secure funding commitments for Afghanistan for the period 2021-2024.
Now is not the time for international donors to be scaling down or stepping back
