Herat PRT and government officials provide 12,000 fruit trees to local farmers
The programme is part of a coordination plan between the PRT and the U.N.'s Disbandment of Illegal Armed Groups (DIAG) initiative, with the aim of boosting the local economy and eradicating illegal activity in the area, such as the cultivation of opium.
A similar project for nine other districts in Herat is expected for the future.
