31 Dec 2019 Afghanistan Round 1 Download

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 Uruzgan, 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.

Throughout Uruzgan, shelter needs remain high, due in particular to the high number of destroyed or damaged houses. 12% of houses in Uruzgan are completely destroyed, 25% are severely damaged, and only 35% of houses are undamaged. In Khas Uruzgan, 68% of houses are either severely damaged (35%) or completely destroyed (33%). Damaged or destroyed houses constrain shelter options, thereby driving up rental prices. 47% of the assessed population in Uruzgan is unable to afford rent — the highest of all surveyed provinces.
