About Harakat

Harakat Afghanistan Investment Climate Program is a non-profit organization working to make it easier to do business in Afghanistan. The organization works closely with government, civil society and private sector partners across four key areas.

Harakat follows on the successes of Harakat Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility, a program funded by the UK Department of International Development (DFID) from 2009-2015. This program's 36 projects laid the foundation for a better business environment in Afghanistan.

Harakat Afghanistan Investment Climate Program began operations in 2017, with seven years of funding from DFID and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
