Résumé partiel
Following more than three decades of war and political upheaval, over 5.5 million Afghan refugees have returned to Afghanistan since 2002. Despite continued efforts to facilitate voluntary repatriation and to support reintegration initiatives in the sub-region, there are still approximately 2.7 Afghan refugees in neighboring Pakistan (1.7 million) and Iran (1 million). The potential return of approximately 400,000 Afghans in 2012 and 2013 has been anticipated As such, there is a pressing need for a more focused attention on stabilizing returnee and internally displaced populations in Afghanistan and securing long-term solutions for the remaining registered Afghan refugees in the countries of asylum. The solutions strategy for the Afghan Situation will include a holistic reintegration strategy ; long-term alternate stay arrangements ; livelihood opportunities and migration management policies ; and investments in host communities. As part of this holistic reintegration strategy this collaboration between UNHCR and the ILO has as objective to undertake a quick livelihood assessment of twenty-two UNHCR priority sites for returnees across Afghanistan. The assessment will provide a picture of economic activities of the returnees and host communities that will inform and guide the designing of pragmatic and effective interventions to enhance the livelihood of the target population under an integrated support programme for the Afghan returnees where several UN agencies, including the ILO, are expected to participate according to their areas of expertise.
