2017: As of 21 May, 101,380 individuals have been displaced in Afghanistan in 2017 with 29 provinces recording some level of forced displacement. This is a 37 percent decrease compared to in 2016 (160,195).

21 May 2017 description

From 1 January 2017 to 14 May 2017, 101,308 individuals fled their homes due to conflict. A total of 29 out of 34 provinces had recorded some level of forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, thus preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining the provision of assistance and services. Displacement affects all individuals differently with needs, vulnerabilities and protection risks evolving over time due to exhaustion of coping mechanisms and only basic emergency assistance provided following initial displacement.
