This report highlights developments in the Good Performer's Initiative (GPI) in Afghanistan. From the text: "The GPI is an incentives program that delivers development aid directly to communities taking strong action against poppy cultivation in Afghanistan. The UK funds the program, and support the Afghan Ministry of Counter Narcotics to implement local projects. Based on Provincial Development Plans, GPI projects help build infrastructure, employ local citizens, and give tangible recognition to governors committed to reducing and eliminating poppy in their provinces. Since the Initiative began in 2006, the number of poppy-free provinces has jumped from 6 to 20."
