Afghanistan: Protection Monitoring - Herat Province, Kadhestan Informal Sites (April 2019)


During the month of April, NRC’s Protection Monitoring activities reached a total of 770 IDPs, 60% men and 40% women. Data suggests that child marriage and child labour continue to be the most pressing protection concerns, Inadequate security of tenure and lack of civil documentation continue to be concerns for adults. In addition, this month saw an increase in perceptions of insecurity in Area of Origin and this causing an unwillingness to return. Concurrent with data from February and March, many IDPs fear returning to their Area of Origins (AoO), which are in control of AOGs, because they perceive they may be targeted and face reprisals for receiving aid from international organizations, especially for females who are registered and have their picture on registration cards/documents.
