A revolution in aid: Start Network releases 2017 Annual Report
Start Network, a global network of aid agencies, has today published its first annual report showcasing its collective efforts to revolutionise the humanitarian aid system.
Over 101,000 undocumented refugees are estimated to have returned from Pakistan in 2016, and the rate of returns increased significantly in July and the first two weeks of August. Most are returning to Nangarhar, where conflict is ongoing. The undocumented returnees' needs are considered to be high as their status means they are not eligible for assistance, and insecurity hampers access.
Humanitarian organisations have major concerns for the protection of thousands of refugees and migrants who are now in overcrowded detention facilities on the Greek islands and may soon be returned to Turkey.
The system for assessing asylum claims in the Greek islands and mainland is understaffed and inadequate, and there is limited safe and acceptable accommodation to host asylum-seekers pending their decision.
