Afghanistan's severe humanitarian crisis two years on from Taliban takeover

Posted on 24 August 2023

Last week marked two years since the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, which has spiraled the country into what many non-governmental organisations are saying is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.
The Taliban have implemented a repressive regime since August 2021, particularly seen in their restriction on the rights of Afghan women.
Decades of conflict had already left the nation in crisis, and the today the country is experiencing an unravelling of the economy, climate related impact, displacement and severe malnutrition rates. In 2023, it is estimated that almost 29 million people – 2/3 of Afghanistan – need urgent humanitarian assistance.
