Durable solutions assessment for protracted IDPs in Naw Abad, Hirat city, Hirat


Durable solutions assessment for protracted IDPs settlements in Naw Abad, Hirat city, Hirat

Principales constatations: 

• Virtually all residents of Naw Abad are conflict induced IDPs.
• 100% of families (N=48) are severely food insecure, with insufficient diets lacking in essential nutrients.
Urgent action is required.
• A significant number of families have members suffering from chronic illness (N=21), mental or physical disability (N=15, N=9)
• Only one resident of Naw Abad possesses a tazkera. Lack of this and other documentation is an impediment to children enrolling in local government schools. There is one community based school in operation on site catering for 20 students, the overwhelming majority of families however (87%) have no members that have attended schooling.
• Water and sanitation are significant issues in Naw Abad, the majority of families rely on community constructed public latrines shared between 4-5 families. Latrines were constructed with insufficient separation/protection around leeching pits, posing a significant risk of ground water contamination. A number of latrines are also in a state of disrepair causing effluent to overflow into public areas. A number of families also have no access to latrines and must resort to open defecation.
• Dwelling in Naw Abad are predominantly tents, constructed either of donated tarpaulin or fabric, whilst 25% families live in single room, mud brick houses. Dwellings offer insufficient protection from the elements, including extreme temperatures and are vulnerable to weather events.
• Naw Abad Settlement was vacant state land prior to the occupation by IDPs. However a private Herati citizen has reportedly laid claim to the land, with the matter currently being examined by the courts.
