 Radio Podcast
Youth and development (Dari/Pashto)
1 September 2015 – In this week’s Afghanistan Emrooz radio show we focus on Afghan youth and their development. The show discusses their role in the country’s development. According to the latest demographic report, 63 per cent of Afghanistan’s population is below the age of 25. That means Afghanistan as a country has one of the youngest populations in the world. Afghanistan Emrooz also discusses the National Youth Policy. It’s a national programme that looks at ways that Afghanistan’s young people can actively contribute to the development of their country.

EVAW law: Implementation and challenges (Dari/Pashto)
25 August 2015 – In this week’s radio programme Afghanistan Emrooz, we focus on the implementation and challenges of the Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW) law that was passed by Presidential Decree in 2009. Since then, more than 2,000 cases of violence against women have been documented and solved in the courts. Yet, there are challenges to implementing the law, as many women still prefer to solve their problems through mediation.  According to UNAMA’s report A Way to Go: An Update on Implementation of the Law on Elimination of Violence against Women in Afghanistan published in 2013, the registration of reported incidents has increased 28 per cent, but the use of the EVAW law as a basis for indictments has not increased significantly. This is the last episode in our radio series on EVAW law. Listen / Download

Afghan casualty figures mask "horrendous" reality (UN radio)
5 August 2015 - Nearly 5,000 Afghan civilians have been killed or injured as a result of ongoing violence in the country in the first six months of the year, according to a UN report released today. Mortar attacks, improvised explosive devices and other lethal weapons are behind the figures, which were compiled by the UNAMA, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.

UNAMA head Nicholas Haysom called the report's findings "truly horrendous", before telling Setyo Budi that it's time to focus on the terrible price paid by families, communities and survivors. Listen  / Download
