 Highlights

Conflict, natural disasters, poverty and regional dynamics continue to generate significant numbers of internally displaced and non-displaced persons. From July 2019 to September 2019, approximately 131,342 individuals affected and /or displaced mostly by conflict were in need of Emergency Shelter and NFI assistance mainly in Nangahar, Takhar, Faryab and Kunar, Badakhsan and Baghlan Provinces in the Western, Eastern, North and Northeast regions of Afghanistan. A total of 32 out of 34 provinces recorded some level of forced displacement. Decades of conflict, coupled with environmental degradation, and insufficient investment in disaster risk reduction strategies, has contributed to increasing vulnerability of the Afghan people to cope with the sudden shock of natural disasters. In addition, lack of adequate shelter, food insecurity, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities, as well as a lack of protection, has resulted in precarious living conditions that jeopardizes the well-being and dignity of affected families. Food, adequate shelter, NFI, WASH, and health care remain high priority needs.
