Afghanistan: Conflict Induced Displacements (as of 22 January 2017)

This is a PDF version of an interactive dashboard. Click this link to access the latest information.

From 1 January 2017 to 8 January 2017, 2,002 individuals fled their homes due to conflict. A total of 5 out of 34 provinces had recorded some level of forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, thus preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining the provision of assistance and services. Displacement affects all individuals differently with needs, vulnerabilities and protection risks evolving over time due to exhaustion of coping mechanisms and only basic emergency assistance provided following initial displacement. Inadequate shelter, food insecurity, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities, as well as a lack of protection, often result in precarious living conditions that jeopardises the well-being and dignity of affected families.
