Briefing note

Returning to what? The challenges displaced Afghans face in securing durable solutions

Published 27. Nov 2018
This policy brief explores the situation faced by returnees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Afghanistan, calling for a collective approach across the humanitarian-development- peace nexus.

Displaced persons in Afghanistan face ever-worsening situations as three studies presented in this policy brief highlight:

1. Returnees and IDPs suffer from worsening displacement-related protection needs;
2. the support to mass number of recent returnees in Jalalabad remains short-term and focused on life-saving needs; and
3. the lack of a systemic response to services and market integration all point to a lacking conducive and responsive environment for durable solutions.
