One of the main drivers of humanitarian needs in Afghanistan is conflict displacement. Since January 2017, some 286,900 people have been forced from their homes due to fighting.

18 Oct 2017 description

From 1 January to 5 October 2017, 286,900 people fled their homes due to conflict in Afghanistan, with 30 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. Displaced families often find themselves in precarious living conditions with their well-being and dignity jeopardised by inadequate shelter, lack of food and water, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities as well as lack of protection.
