There are over 50 Kabul informal settlements (KIS) where returnees and IDPs live in extreme poverty. Skills upgrading can be an effective policy to strengthen local integration; vocational training can lead to increased productivity and higher income. This third study by Samuel Hall on the living conditions of IDPs contributes to the knowledge needed to mainstream protection in policy responses.
This report – based on research from Samuel Hall Consulting and commissioned by the Norwegian Refugee Council – provides the first systematic overview of protection of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Afghanistan. It combines the voices of IDPs with analysis of the decision-making processes shaping responses to internal displacement.
This workshop organised with NRC aimed at presenting and discussing key findings from Samuel Hall’s IDP Protection Study, agreeing upon key protection priorities for IDPs in Afghanistan, drafting and reaching a consensus on realistic and impactful recommendations based on the study’s findings and the experience and expertise of participants and determining next steps for MoRR’s National IDP Policy Working Group on how to incorporate the study and workshop outputs into the policy development process.
The primary objective of this World Bank-sponsored three-day training session was to design and conduct a Resettlement and Rehabilitation (R&R) training program for Afghan midlevel decision makers and relevant academic institutions engaged in infrastructure planning and development of projects.
