Afghanistan hosts a protracted population of Pakistani refugees, who fled North Waziristan Agency (NWA) in 2014 as a result of military operations which left the civilian population of Miranshah and surrounding villages forcibly displaced. As of 30 September 2017, UNHCR has biometrically registered more than 51,000 refugees in Khost province. In 2016, UNHCR verified the registration of almost 36,000 refugees in Paktika province, where access remains a challenge on account of insecurity as anti-government elements (AGEs) control or contest a substantial amount of territory. UNHCR has received unconfirmed reports that Pakistani refugees may be among the civilian casualties resulting from cross-border shelling, and armed conflict between pro-government forces and AGEs in Afghanistan. Cultural barriers also impact on efforts to comprehensively register the refugee population, especially women. Based on focus group discussions and key informants, UNHCR estimates that at least 100,000 refugees from NWA remain in Afghanistan. Some 16,440 refugees receive shelter and other essential services in the Gulan camp in Khost province, while most live alongside Afghan host communities in various urban and rural locations. NWA refugees benefit from the generous hospitality of provincial Afghan government authorities and the general population, due in part to tribal affiliations, as well as a shared understanding of the trauma of forced displacement. During participatory shura meetings, most refugees have stated they are currently unwilling to repatriate to Pakistan, including refugees who have undertaken independent visits to NWA to assess for themselves the conditions of return. UNHCR does not have the necessary permission of the Government of Pakistan to monitor refugee returns in NWA or to support sustainable reintegration. UNHCR Afghanistan, in coordination with other humanitarian agencies, provides targeted assistance to persons with specific needs (PSN) among the NWA refugee population in Khost and Paktika provinces, and implements community-based protection measures to build the resilience of refugees as well as the host population, promoting peaceful co-existence through livelihoods initiatives, shelter, development of knowledge, healthcare, nutrition, WASH projects, and NFI distributions. The primary source of income among refugees is non-agricultural daily-wage labour, while some refugees subsist on remittances from relatives working abroad in other countries.

From February to October 2016, the American Red Cross and its local Red Cross partners completed an effort to extensively map areas within a 15-kilometer distance of the shared borders between Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
The goal of this work was to create an open and comprehensive dataset of communities for West Africa and to ensure that decision makers, humanitarian workers, and community stakeholders are better aware of water, sanitation, health, and community resources before and during the next crisis.
To complete this mapping, the American Red Cross launched a mapping center in Guéckédou, Guinea, and used it as both a base of operations and a community engagement facility. Over 100 volunteers helped to complete a rapid assessment of the region, visiting over 7,000 communities by motorbike to complete a vulnerability survey with the village leader. Next, over 100 communities were selected for a round of detailed mapping, focusing on collecting the location and information about every water point, health facility and other community resource in the area. In addition, we led technical skills trainings and mapping events both in Guéckédou and across the region.

The Task Force for Population Movement (TFPM) is a Technical Working Group to the Inter-Cluster
Coordination Mechanism. (ICCM) The TFPM implements an information management tool that gathers data
and location of displaced persons across Yemen.
As of 01 Sep 2017, the TFPM has identified, 2,014,026 internally displaced persons (IDPs) (335,671
households) who have been displaced due to conflict since March 2015, dispersed across 21 governorates.
For the same period, the TFPM has identified 956,076 returnees (159,346 households), across 20 governorates.
As a result, 10.3% of the total population of Yemen has experienced the shock of displacement due to conflict
in the last 30 months.
The data collected is a compilation of data collection activities conducted through the period of May to
August 2018. The data presents the best estimates of displacement and returnee movements in locations

The Oceanic Niño Index (ONI) has become the de facto standard that the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses to identify El Niño (warm) and
La Niña (cool) events in the tropical Pacific. It is the three month mean SST
anomaly for the El Niño 3.4 region (i.e., 5°N-5°S, 120°-170°W). Events are defined as five
consecutive overlapping three month periods at or above the +0.5°C anomaly for warm (El
Niño), events and at or below the -0.5 anomaly for cold (La Niña) events. The threshold
is further broken down into Weak (with a 0.5 to 0.9 SST anomaly), Moderate (1.0 to 1.4)
and Strong (≥ 1.5) events. For an event to be categorized as weak, moderate or strong. it
must have equalled or exceeded the threshold for at least three consecutive overlapping
three month periods.
