projects updates
by NRC and
IDP policy
Concern Worldwide: CWW constructs 165 shelters for Eshkamesh district flood affected
families and 127 shelters for Khawja-Khairab landslide affected families in Dash-e-Qala
district of Takhar province. The shelter constructions are about completion and will be
handed over to beneficiaries in the comings weeks. The WASH gaps have been
addressed by DACAAR and CWW, but the IDP families do not have full access to health
and education facilities. According to OCT team distance from IDP camps to health
clinics and schools are more than five km.
NRC: NRC has constructed 48 shelters for returnees. The shelters were handed over to
beneficiaries. NRC is constructing a total of 60 shelters for Taloqan city flood affected
families: 27 shelters in Ahangaran village, 4 shelters in Mughulha village, 5 shelters in
Kalafganiha village, 11 shelters in Baba Zarif village, and 13 shelters in Poli Qaq village
of Taloqan city. The beneficiaries received disaster risk reduction and hygiene training,
latrines were constructed and about 50 families have been accommodated in their
OCHA updated on the National IDP policy task force’s work, conveyed the key message
on policy implementation at the national level and 2014 implementation at the provincial
level and plans for 2015. The update IDP policy is attached. Key points: Funding IDP is
integrated into the annual budget of the line ministers+ individual UN/NGO of budget
contributions. Ensuring an all of government to IDP and aligning UN and civil society
response with governmental response. Development of the provincial action plans is area
based not group based and is keeping with the governmental budget item in line. Policy
covers the entire range of displacement so requires enjoyment of both humanitarian and
development sectors. Delimitation of the policy will enable a common understanding and
language around IDPs. Issues of Refugee Returnees are similar to IDPs.
Follow up on the gap
with related clusters:
IDPs do not have full
access to health and
education in Dash-eQala and Eshkamesh
The IDP policy was
already shared with
humanitarian partners.
Once again, OCHA will
circulate the updated
policy together with
OCT minutes.
