Recent studies commissioned by DFID show that Afghanistan will be strongly affected by climate change principally as a result of changes in the hydrological cycle. Improved land and water resources management is hence the way to spur development and reduce vulnerability. To achieve this, watershed management is a widely accepted approach. There is, however, very little professional and institutional capacity to support SLM Sustainable Land Management. Afghan and international development and humanitarian institutions have increasingly recognized this and have come up with the idea of setting up a training to be headquartered in Bamyan, the Sustainable Land Management Institute of Afghanistan (SLMIA). The objectives of SLMIA are: 1) enhanced knowledge and skills of professionals, field technicians and extension workers for participatory and integrated sustainable land and water management; 2) enhanced local capacity to lead and manage land and water management initiatives through advising; and 3) identification, documentation and dissemination of locally relevant potential techniques and tools in SLM and improved coordination amongst SLM-related institutions. After its formal establishment, one of SLMIA’s first activities will be to develop a plan aimed at achieving institutional sustainability within 10 years. SDC’s involvement in SLMIA is aimed at being increasingly present in the national dialogue on rural development.
