Organization for Sustainable Development and Research
The Organization for Sustainable Development and Research (OSDR) is a registered non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organization working in the field of survey, monitoring and evaluation, disaster risk management, sustainable development and agriculture capacity building.
OSDR has conducted roughly 600 projects in these fields in all 34 provinces of Afghanistan. OSDR’s vision is to support social and economic development with specific focus on the most vulnerable communities through provision of skills, knowledge and information. Our mission is to provide policy and decision makers, during ongoing reconstruction, nation and state building process, with timely and reliable data and information for informed decisions and to develop indigenous human capacities to ensure future self-reliance and sustainable development.
OSDR will conduct fieldwork in the borderlands of Nangarhar and Nimroz provinces. With the close coordination of Dr David Mansfield and based on feedback from other partners, OSDR will design research tools and translate these into local languages (Pashto).
