This brief summarises the impact of climate change and natural hazards on energy production in Afghanistan, which is dominated by hydro power generation, including future competition for water resources and a range of long-term climate phenomena such as temperature rising, flooding, water scarcity, landslides and earthquakes. 

It also outlines World Bank action plans for managing these disaster risks, including an analysis of DRM frameworks, strategic planning, and prospects for renewable energy production and energy system resilience.
