Background

Since 2008, the International Organization for Migration has supported undocumented Afghan returnees from Pakistan and Iran. In recent years, the numbers of undocumented returnees have increased and drastic spikes of returnee numbers have been registered in 2016 and 2017. A total of 760,000 undocumented Afghan returnees have been registered in the period from 1 January 2016 – 19 March 2017 and a total of 691 IDPs registered in the period 1 January 2016 – 19 March 2017, due to conflict-induced internal displacement.

In response to the dramatic increase of Afghans returning home from neighbouring countries, as well as record levels of internal displacement, IOM launched the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in Afghanistan. The main objective of the DTM in Afghanistan is to support the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and partnering humanitarian agencies to provide on time assistance to the population affected by the displacement.

DTM components in Afghanistan includes:

  • Baseline Mobility Tracking
  • Flow Monitoring
  • Migration Flows Surveys
