RC-South Assessment

Historical Data


Rc s area of operation

RC-S (Area of Operation)

  • Comprised of six provinces: Nimruz, Helmand, Kandahar, Zabol, Urozgan and Day Kundi.

  • Spans roughly 78,000 square miles, making it slightly larger than Nebraska, and shares a 550-mile border with Pakistan.

  • Helmand and Kandahar are the two largest and most populated provinces, and their population is concentrated along two major rivers, the Arghandab River and the Helmand River.

  • Kandahar - Afghanistan’s second largest city with a population of half a million - is the political and economic center of the South.

  • The southern region of Afghanistan is predominantly ethnic Pashtun, but there are small minorities of Hazaras in the northern areas of Day Kundi, and Baluchis on the very southern edges of the region.

  • The Arghandab River flows south from the Afghan central mountains, passing just north of Kandahar City. Together with its various tributaries, the Arghandab irrigates the greater Kandahar area—including the Arghandab Valley, northern Panjwaii, Zhari and Maywand—before continuing westward to join the Helmand River immediately south of LashkarGah. 

  • There are four Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs) in the south. They are in Kandahar City, Kandahar Province (led by Canada); Lashkar-Gah, Helmand (led by the United Kingdom); TarinKowt, Uruzgan (led by the Netherlands) and Qalat, Zabul (led by Romania and USA). There is no PRT in Nimruz.

  • The U.N. estimates the Taliban groups reap between $200 and $300 million from opium annually
