Da Afghanistan Bank’s Foreign Exchange Reserves

Author: Khan Afzal Hadawal

Following the Taliban takeover, the provision of humanitarian assistance by donors has played a crucial role in stabilizing the Afghan currency against major currencies and in alleviating economic burdens. This paper shares recommendations for the best use of the assets that make up Afghanistan’s Foreign Exchange Reserves.

This publication is part of a series highlighting the work and analysis of the Afghanistan Research Network (ARN), a project convened by LSE / PeaceRep, and the Civic Engagement Project (CEP). The network brings together over 20 Afghan researchers (and several non-Afghans) with diverse expertise and backgrounds investigating a range of issues. This project aims to support Afghan researchers who were recently forced to leave Afghanistan; to ensure expert and analytical provision; inform contextually-appropriate international policies and practices on Afghanistan; and to deepen understanding of evolving political, security, and economic dynamics.
