Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

After nearly four decades of protracted displacement, Pakistan still hosts over 1 million registered refugees, holders of Proof of Registration (PoR) cards. 

Since July 2016, and due to a complex set of security and political factors, there has been a surge in the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan. As of end December 2016, over 380, 000 Afghan refugees have returned to Afghanistan this year alone. All efforts are done to promote a voluntary, safe, dignified and phased return, with the framework of the Solutions Strategy for Afghan Refugees (SSAR).

The Refugee Affected and Hosting Areas (RAHA) programme, another key element of the SSAR, will continue to provide enhance support to host communities and promote peaceful co-existence.

Funding gap on both important elements of the SSAR, voluntary return and RAHA programme, would have a direct impact on regional stability.

In the meantime, the vast majority of the remaining internally displaced families affected by the security operations in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) are expected to return and UNHCR plans to responsibly disengage from its protection cluster responsibility by the end of 2017.

UNHCR and partners are also planning for the return of people who were displaced from North Waziristan in Pakistan in 2014 and remained in Afghanistan.
