Afghanistan: The Uncertain Impact of a Year of Transition (PDF)
This report updates those reports to both cover all of 2015 and include a wide range of additional indicators. It shows that there are positive trends and developments as well as negative ones. Changes in the nature and level of outside military support and civil aid, and reform by the Afghan government, could reverse many of the growing problems revealed in this report. At the same time, it provides enough reliable metrics and narratives to raise serious concern about the level of progress in Afghanistan, the mix of civil and military trends that have developed since U.S. and allied forces began to make serious withdrawals, and the broad deterioration of the political, governance, economic, and security situation during 2015.
