Description
Afghanistan is one of the least economically developed countries in the world. The economy is based on agriculture, but much of the land suitable for farming has been damaged by drought, deforestation, and war. Many farmers resort to the illegal growing of poppies to produce heroin for export. After Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan in 1979, the country endured many years of civil war. An extreme Islamic organization called the Taliban took control in 1996, but was defeated in 2001 by a US-led force. Fighting has continued between the new government, along with its international allies, and Taliban groups. It will be hard for Afghanistan to develop economically until peace is achieved.
