Soybeans for Agricultural Renewal in Afghanistan Initiative (SARAI): Inquiry Report
John F. Sopko (au)
This report examines the Soybeans for Agricultural Renewal in Afghanistan Initiation (SARAI) funded by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) and the apparent lack of analysis and planning performed prior to the projectäó»s initiation. The USDA confirmed that soybean production in Afghanistan has not met expectations and there are doubts concerning the long-term sustainability of a soybean processing factory built there. The projectäó»s implementer, the American Soybean Assoc., did not conduct feasibility or value-chain studies prior to initiation of the project in 2010. Moreover, soybeans were inappropriate for conditions and farming practices in northern Afghanistan, where the program was implemented. Despite these factors and evidence that may have put the success of the program in doubt, USDA provided $34.4 million commodities, transportation, and administrative funds for SARAI. This report also makes recommendations for actions prior to any further investment of U.S. government funding in SARAI. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
