In coordination with the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR), from May through June 2019, DTM in Afghanistan piloted a Community-Based Needs Assessment (CBNA) in Helmand, intended as an integral component of DTM's Baseline Mobility Assessment to provide a more comprehensive view of multi-sectoral needs in settlements hosting IDPs and returnees.
