US withdraw from Afghanistan Dam

Since 2010 the United States has worked on repairing and securing the Kajaki Dam in Afghanistan. The United States Agency for International Developments aid to this program and dam would provide much needed electrical supply to the countries largest city, Kandahar. Now, recently the USAID has decided to pull out of the most critical part of the project and give over to the Afghan government.

The primary issue is Afghan’s lack of ability to administer the project. This in turn jeopardizes the increase of electrical supply to that region and drastically reduces much needed economic stability within that region.  This also affects the US by relinquishing the funds and budget for the project we can see an increase in US funding for its expansionary fiscal policy, which will therefore increase GDP within the US.
