A. Situation analysis
Description of Disaster
The rains during the recent Monsoon season have been quite heavy resulting in the emergence of dengue cases from Peshawar by the mid-August 2017. These cases continued to rise and by 24th August a sudden surge was noticed with a number of patients admitted in the major government hospitals of Peshawar.
In keeping with previous years, humanitarian response has continued to be defined by conflict in the first half of 2017 with equally unacceptably high numbers of civilian casualties (‐1 percent) and a steady rise in armed clashes (+4 percent) if compared to the same period last year, despite an overall reduction in displacement (‐15 percent).
Last week, more than 10,300 people have been displaced across Afghanistan, bringing the total number of displaced people to more than 212,000.
More than 20,000 people reportedly have been displaced from Ghormach district to villages within the same district, other districts in Faryab Province and to Maymana City.
Some 7,000 people displaced within Hilmand are reportedly living in dire conditions in Greshk, Nahr-e-Saraj. Due to insecurity, humanitarian partners have no access to these families.
GoP repatriation program assists nearly 260,000 displaced households to return to FATA
Recent polio vaccination campaigns reach 92 percent of targeted children countrywide
Flooding results in nearly 50 deaths and displaces at least 11,200 people
In 2017 UNICEF humanitarian support continued for displaced and returning families in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), and the drought-affected population in Sindh. A total of 29,192 families returned to FATA since January 2017, while 45,488 families remained displaced.
a. In 2012, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) agreed to develop and adopt Assessment and Monitoring Framework for Pakistan. Assessment Working Group (AWG), co-chaired by NDMA and OCHA, was mandated to develop and propose guidelines for this purpose. Subsequently, AWG in consultation with NDMA, Provincial Disaster Management Authorities (PDMAs), relevant government institutions, clusters and UN agencies drafted frame-work, tools and methodology for coordinated assessments.
Arrivals in the Mediterranean from 01 January until 30 June 2017 total 102,847 (Greece, Italy, Spain and Cyprus, including arrivals to the Canary Islands and by land to Spain). This compares to 231,075 for the same period in 2016. In the first half of the year, 9,286 persons arrived in Greece by sea (158,377 arrived during same period in 2016, a decrease by 94%).
• Strong commitment from field leadership and operational actors on NWOW needs to be backed by unified direction from headquarters. There is a need for a clear roadmap from the UNDG and IASC to move forward systemically.
Afghanistan acceded to the 1951 Convention and 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees in 2005, but has not implemented a national asylum framework.
In 2014, Afghanistan received an influx of refugees from North Waziristan Agency; an estimated 125,000 individuals remain in a protracted refugee-like situation.
Under its mandate, UNHCR has registered 371 asylumseekers and refugees of various nationalities in Kabul and other urban centres.
ProCap aims to strengthen the collaborative response of protection agencies and non-protection mandated organisations. To do this, it deploys senior personnel with proven protection expertise at field, regional and global operations and trains mid-level protection staff from standby partners and humanitarian organisations. The Project objectives and activities are guided by the 2014-2016 ProCap Strategy.
Project Governance / Management
Launched in 2005, ProCap aims to enhance the humanitarian system’s protection response through the deployment of Senior Protection Advisers and the delivery of inter-agency protection capacity trainings. The strategic direction of the project is reviewed regularly to ensure that it responds to changing needs and gaps within the international humanitarian response. An external evaluation in 2007, a Strategic Review in 2009, and an external evaluation in 2011 all confirmed the continued relevance of the project.
