Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Hirat Province, September 2014

Context: The relative security of the province together with the significant livelihood, economic and commercial opportunities created by trade with Iran have attracted people fleeing conflict, natural disaster and poverty over the last 20 years: the province hosts today one of the largest IDP populations in the country. Hirat city is the base for a significant humanitarian, development and diplomatic presence and has one of the better resourced disaster response mechanisms in the Western Region. Recent security incidents have affected the movement of NGOs to rural areas.

Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Badghis Province, September 2014

Context: The province ranks third in the CHAP 2014 with comparatively negative indicators across all sectors. Badghis is vulnerable to natural disasters with predictable and recurrent natural hazards (flooding and drought) having localised but significant impact, particularly in rain-fed areas. The province is also affected by conflict, sharing a border with the highly contested province of Faryab but without experiencing its high rate of displacement. There is a high degree of dependence on the humanitarian community to prepare and respond to emergencies.

Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Ghor Province, September 2014

Context: The CHAP 2014 identified Ghor as the province with the fifth highest relative humanitarian need in Afghanistan. The province is chronically food insecure with dependence on rain-fed agriculture, making it vulnerable to recurrent droughts. Seasonal flooding has often localized but significant impact. The mountainous terrain, poor road infrastructure and the seasonal and security-related closure of intra and inter-provincial roads reduce people’s access to services and challenge the reach of humanitarian responders.

Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Farah Province, September 2014

Context: The province has the highest risk profiles in Afghanistan as a result of poor access to basic health services, restricted humanitarian access and exposure to drought. It is the most contested area in the Western Region with civilians in the northern, central and eastern districts significantly exposed to conflict. Basic services provision outside of the provincial capital is minimal. The province has few resources and insecurity has affected the presence and reach of NGOs.
