This case report explores the challenges faced by Afghan refugees who had been living in Pakistan and returned to Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. It explores the returnees’ experience of reintegration back into their home country and focuses on their access to land, as land ownership is the main pillar of the Afghan government’s official reintegration strategy. Further, it is nearly impossible to have status at the neighborhood level, to find work, or to become socially respected without owning land.

Foreword

The current crisis in South Sudan is one of the world’s most challenging humanitarian operations.
This makes for a difficult environment for gathering and analyzing data: The country is large, population is widely dispersed, and limits on transportation and telecommunications are severe.
The IPC system has been able to address many of these challenges, and it has also learned from its experience. This learning has not always been easy, and many challenges remain.

Briefing Paper

Since the mid-2000s, an ongoing humanitarian crisis in the three northeastern states of Nigeria has spread to the greater Lake Chad basin. The Boko Haram conflict turned into a major security problem that led to widespread displacement and a major humanitarian catastrophe. UNOCHA estimates that more than 20,0000 people have been killed, 1.6 million are internally displaces, and 200,000 are living as refugees in neighboring countries.

Between 2004 and 2014, UNHCR’s Confidence Building Measures (CBM) program helped more than 20,000 refugees in the Tindouf desert camps of Algeria to visit their families in Western Sahara, from whom they’d been separated since the conflict in Western Sahara began (late 1970s). The CBM program was brought to a halt by politics, but the report suggests that the time is right for this ‘humanitarian bridge’ to be re-opened.

This report gives a human perspective of the experiences and personal impact that CBM’s family visit flights program had on Sahrawi refugees and their families.

Executive Summary

In many protracted emergencies, the prevalence rates of global acute malnutrition (GAM) regularly exceed the emergency threshold of > 15% of children with acute malnutrition (< -2 weight-for-height z-scores (WHZ) or with nutritional edema), despite ongoing humanitarian interventions. The widespread scale and long-lasting nature of “persistent GAM” means that it is a policy and programming priority.
