This Executive Summary presents the key findings of the Afghanistan Opium Survey 2016. The full report on cultivation and production will be published in November 2016 and a separate report presenting the results of the socio-economic survey will be published early 2017. The survey is implemented annually by MCN in collaboration with UNODC. The survey team collects and analyses information on the location and extent of opium poppy cultivation, potential opium production and the socio-economic situation in rural areas. Since 2005, MCN and UNODC have also been involved in the verification of poppy eradication conducted by provincial governors and poppy-eradication forces. This information is essential for planning, implementing and monitoring counter-narcotic efforts.

The opium survey is implemented within the technical framework of the UNODC Illicit Crop Monitoring Programme (ICMP). The objective of ICMP is to assist the international community in monitoring the extent and evolution of illicit crops in the context of the Plan of Action adopted by the 53rd session of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs in March 2009. Under ICMP, UNODC carries out monitoring activities in other countries affected by illicit crop cultivation: in Asia, Myanmar; in Latin America, Bolivia (Plurinational State of), Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru; and in Africa, Nigeria.

The Afghanistan Opium Survey 2016 was implemented under the project “Monitoring of Opium Production in Afghanistan” (AFG/F98), with financial contributions from the Governments of Japan and United States of America.
