Afghanistan has experienced periodic drought over the past 30 years, but none occurring simultaneously with widespread insecurity and a global pandemic—until now. The combined effects of this “triple crisis” are gravely affecting people throughout the country.

This Rapid Gender Analysis was conducted to assess the gendered effects of the drought in Afghanistan using primary and secondary data. CARE conducted in-person surveys, focus group discussions, and key informant interviews to explore how the drought has affected women's decision-making, access to food and information, and ownership of productive assets, among other topics.
