2020 Afghanistan Conference


When: 23-24 November 2020


The Government of Afghanistan, Finland and the United Nations are co-hosting the 2020 Afghanistan Conference on 23–24 November in Geneva.

The quadrennial pledging conference presents an important opportunity for the Afghan Government and the international community to commit to common objectives for promoting sustainable development, prosperity and peace in Afghanistan.

The aim of the conference is to commit the Afghan government and the international community to shared development objectives for 2021-24, to coordinate development cooperation, and to ensure financial support for the Afghan administration. In addition to the pledges of financial support, a joint political declaration and a new aid architecture are the anticipated outcomes of the conference.

The ministerial level pledging conference is expected to bring together over 70 countries as well as international organisations and agencies. It was last held in 2016 in Brussels and in Tokyo in 2012.

The two-day 2020 Afghanistan Conference begins on Monday 23 November with side events and continues on Tuesday 24 November with the main event: the pledging conference.

More information: Information about accreditation, programme and side events to the ministerial level conference will be shared on the Conference websites:
