The recent wave of militancy and terrorism has spilled over rapidly from FATA to the settled districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, threatening the entire social fabric of the province.
With the closure of refugee camps and subsequent withdrawal of humanitarian assistance compelled these afghan families to urban localities, and turned in to alternate livelihood patterns for their survival. Resultantly, the shift put huge pressure on the service structure including livelihood, education, health, water and sanitation services in all metropolis of Pakistan. Afghans concentrated in and around villages and camps have contributed to the degradation of the environment, accelerating the deterioration of the physical infrastructure, forests and livestock grazing areas.
Although economic backwardness, low human development and relative poverty do not, by themselves, give rise to violence, they do provide the underlying structural conditions that militant groups can exploit to achieve their goals by promising better opportunities and hope for social justice and equity. Large sections of the population still lack access to electricity, health ,Education ,clean drinking water and sanitation facilities. Even where rudimentary facilities exist, service levels are barely functional.
Keeping in view the complexity of the problem, IDEA contemplates with a view of compensating local populace for their sufferings and facilitates Afghan Refugees for sustainable returns and enhancing their social ties with local communities in the period in between.
