The migration context in Afghanistan is multi-faceted and complex. After 40 years of sustained conflict and violence four million Afghan nationals continue to reside in Pakistan and Iran. Afghanistan is simultaneously a country of origin, destination and asylum. 2016 witnessed the highest number of conflict induced IDPs on record at 630,000 persons and over one million Afghans returning from neighbouring countries. Due to the acute frequency and severity of conflict in 2017, an additional 350,000 Afghans have been internally displaced, with a projected caseload of 300,000 new IDPs for 2018. Cross-border returns have continued into 2017, with 546,084 returning Afghan nationals recorded. Annually, approximately 250,000 Afghans are affected by natural and manmade hazards with Afghanistan being one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world.

IOM Transit Centres at major border crossing points with Pakistan and Iran provide returning Afghan migrants with medical screening, accommodation, food, NFIs, transportation cash grants and referral services. IOM also prepositions stocks of emergency shelter and NFIs for distribution to populations affected by natural hazards around the country. Similarly, IOM engages in large scale disaster risk reduction projects, such as the construction of gabion walls in flood and avalanche prone communities while establishing early warning systems through training of community members.

IOM’s DTM implements Flow Monitoring at the major border crossings with Iran and Pakistan and baseline mobility assessments at the community level to 1) quantify mobility patterns, profiles and intentions of migrant, mobile, cross-border and nomadic populations; 2) provide evidence-based metrics on outflows and circular, labour migration flows; and 3) identify at-risk, vulnerable migrants in need of protection. IOM also focusses on community stabilization activities, including livelihoods assistance for returnees and affected communities to ensure return and reintegration are sustainable.

IOM Afghanistan is the leading agency providing humanitarian assistance to undocumented Afghan returnees and populations affected by disasters. IOM is an active member of the UNCT, the HCT and the Inter-Cluster Coordination Team. In addition, IOM is active in several clusters (namely protection, multi-purpose cash transfer, coordination, emergency shelter and NFI, and WASH), working groups and is the co-chair for the ES-NFI cluster while being a leading member of the Displacement and Return Executive Committee. IOM works very closely with the host government. Its counterpart on regional returns is the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR) and in support of disaster risk reduction IOM partners with the Afghanistan Natural Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA).
