From 1 January to 5 June 2017, 136,300 individuals fled their homes due to conflict in Afghanistan, with 29 of 34 provinces recording forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining provision of assistance and services. Inadequate shelter, food insecurity, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities, as well as a lack of protection, often result in precarious living conditions that jeopardises the well-being and dignity of displaced families.

14 Jun 2017 description

One of the main drivers of humanitarian needs in Afghanistan is conflict displacement. Since January 2017, some 126,500 people have been forced from their homes due to fighting. Many of these people remain in displacement across the country, as conflict prevents them from returning to their areas of origin.

More than 99,600 undocumented and registered refugee Afghans have returned from Pakistan in 2017. While difficult to predict, it is anticipated that between 864,000 and 1.5 million Afghans could return to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries this year.

From 1 January 2017 to 04 June 2017, 126,594 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.
