Consultation on the Importance of Peacebuilding in Afghanistan

human development. This two days  consultation will allow Canadian
NGOs, government officials, and individuals  concerned with the future
peace building in Afghanistan to gather and discuss  the key issues
affecting the country. By promoting awareness and open dialogue 
between all stakeholders, it will provide appropriate policy
recommendations for  the government and NGOs involved in the
peacebuilding process in  Afghanistan.
