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.
