This NATO report states,
"This is the second Annual Report on Afghanistan produced by NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division. It does not attempt to catalogue each and every activity being carried out by all international actors, individual nations and the Afghan Government. It does, however, offer a general look at progress in each of the three main lines of effort in which NATO-ISAF is involved, directly or in a supporting role: security, governance and development. And it goes beyond setting out only what NATO-ISAF has done; it attempts to provide the reader with a broader and more balanced picture, including both elements of progress and those areas in which more needs to be done.
The conclusion we draw from this report is simple: while the challenges in Afghanistan remain huge, so is the international will and the international effort to help the Afghan people overcome them. A strong foundation is being built – more slowly than we would like, but steadily – for a better, more secure future for the Afghan people, including through this year’s Presidential elections, the second after the fall of the Taliban."
