Introduction and Needs

Pakistan has been host to over three million Afghan nationals for more than three decades starting from the 1980s – this includes over two million Afghan refugees and one million undocumented Afghans. According to the Commissionerate of Afghan Refugees (CAR) another 700,000 Afghans (both refugees and undocumented migrants) are expected to move across the border in the coming two years. Currently, the country hosts approximately 1.3 million registered refugees and 600,000 – 700,000 undocumented Afghans. Since August 2017, the governments of Pakistan and Afghanistan have initiated the documentation process for undocumented Afghans residing in Pakistan. 

Over 2.8 million people were forced to flee the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) due to complex emergencies between 2008 and 2014. The improved level of security in FATA has increased the returns of most IDPs however 43,777 families remain displaced as of 2 November (OCHA Pakistan/FATA Returns Snapshot), and will continue to require humanitarian and recovery assistance in the next year. Moreover, Pakistan ranks seventh on the list of ten countries most affected by disasters from 1996 – 2015 , and the country frequently experiences multiple disasters in a given year. 

In 2018, IOM plans to continue Flow Monitoring activities at Torkham and Chaman border crossings as well as facilitate the ongoing registration of undocumented Afghan nationals in Pakistan. The number of undocumented Afghans registered will be used as a baseline for future interventions. In response to IDPs returning to areas of origin, IOM will focus on supporting displaced and returning populations to promote durable solutions through its Humanitarian Communication and Community Stabilization programmes. In response to natural calamities, IOM will continue to support at-risk and affected communities through its multi-sector preparedness, response and recovery activities.  

IOM has extensive experience in delivering humanitarian assistance and coordinating emergency response in close coordination with the Government, UN agencies, donors, and Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC), local and international NGOs.
