Pakistan Update: Displacement in KP/FATA, Needs and Response, 28 May – 18 June 2012
Since July 2008, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) have experienced significant population movement as a result of government operations against non-state armed groups as well as sectarian violence. The situation remains volatile.
Three IDP camps are operational: Jalozai and Togh Sarai in KP and New Durrani in Kurram Agency, FATA. Most of the IDPs – some 85 per cent - are living in host communities, outside of camps.
UNICEF and other humanitarian partners are assisting three types of affected people:
i. The existing caseload of IDPs, living either in one of the three camps or in host communities.
ii. A new caseload of IDPs from Khyber Agency – over 240,299 persons registered since January 2012.
iii. Population returning or returned to areas in FATA that have been declared safe. No new returns were undertaken in the last two weeks.
