Afghanistan: ICCT Real-Time Response Overview (08 December 2021)

This report is produced by OCHA Afghanistan in collaboration with humanitarian partners via clusters. This report covers activities carried out between 1 September and 30 November 2021. It aims to provide a frequent overview of response activities against the needs articulated in the Flash Appeal. The reporting timeframe will match the Flash Appeal which details a four-month – from 1 September to 31 December 2021 – strategic response to the current crisis. The plan draws largely on unmet needs detailed in the 2021 HRP (Humanitarian Response Plan) while also incorporating new emerging needs, as they are currently understood.

The next ICCT Real-Time Response Overview Situation Report will be released on 22 December and cover activities carried out between 1 September and 15 December.


• Humanitarians seek US$606 million as part of the Flash Appeal to provide prioritised multi-sectoral assistance to 11 million people in the four remaining months of 2021. As at 7 December, the Flash Appeal is now over 100 per cent funded. While humanitarians remain grateful for the generous contribution by the donor community, all commitments have not been translated to actions on the ground as partners continue to face liquidity challenges amid the financial system crisis. The absence of these challenges would enable humanitarian partners to further scale up the response at a higher pace and reach more people in need of assistance.

• Donors are urged to ensure transactions and other activities required for humanitarian operations are excluded from the scope of sanctions regimes to allow humanitarian activities to continue without impediment. Donors are also encouraged to issue special licences and identify new disbursement avenues to allow continuation of basic services, upon which a considerable amount of the humanitarian response is delivered.

• Since 1 September 2021, partners have reached 130,025 children with community-based education activities, supported 148,891 people with standard NFIs assistance, provided 7.9 million people with food assistance, reached 1,160,077 people with primary and secondary healthcare (direct consultations), provided treatment for Acute Malnutrition to 201,560 children under five, supported 44,903 people with individual protection assistance including cash for protection, and reached 488,343 people with WASH assistance including through hygiene promotion and hygiene kits.
