• Conflict displaces approximately 438,000 Afghans from January 1–December 19, 2017
• GoA, humanitarian agencies to address winter needs of 78,000 households
• Afghanistan HRP requests $430 million to assist approximately 2.8 million people
One of the main drivers of humanitarian needs in Afghanistan is conflict displacement. Since January 2017, some 438,000 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 156,000 undocumented and registered refugee Afghans have returned from Pakistan in 2017. The number of returnees has to date this year reached 40 per cent of the total returns in the past year, notably due to an improvement of the protection environment in Pakistan.
TRENDS AND KEY FIGURES
Between 1 January 2017 and 30 November 2017, 171,300 refugees and migrants arrived by sea and land to Europe (Greece, Italy, Spain and Cyprus only, including arrivals to the Canary Islands and by land to Spain). While sea arrivals to Europe in November were 51% lower than last year, largely due to fewer people crossing from Libya, higher numbers crossed from Libya in November than in October while Spain recorded the highest number of land and sea arrivals this year.
Somalia continues to face political instability, humanitarian crisis and clan conflicts.
Due to ongoing conflicts, drought and food insecurity more than one million people have been newly displaced in 2017.
