Nangarhar (Pashto: ننگرهار) is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan. It lies in the east of the country. Its capital is the city of Jalalabad. Its population is more than 2,000,000 and it borders Pakistan.

 

Economy and Puppy Production

Once a major center of opium poppy production in Afghanistan, the province had reportedly decreased its production of poppy by up to 95% in 2005, one of the success stories of the Afghani eradication program. However, the eradication program has often left peasant farmers destitute, and many farmers were reported to have given their children in payment for debts to opium dealers.

 

Geographical Military Situation

Nangarhar shares a border with Pakistan, and the two regions share very close ties, with large amounts of migration either way. Most of the province still uses Pakistani currency rather than Afghan money for commercial transactions.
H5N1 (Bird Flue) was first detected in Afghanistan in Nangarhar province in March 2006.
