Afghanistan Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) Country-Level Study
The Afghanistan Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) country-level study is one in a series of studies undertaken by the Joint UNEP/OCHA Environment Unit (JEU) in 2015 that assesses the extent to which environmental concerns have been mainstreamed in humanitarian action.
In June 2015, the JEU undertook a two week mission to Afghanistan to better understand environmental mainstreaming in a range of contexts, including: conflict and natural disaster related internal displacement, Pakistani refugees in camps and host communities, and Afghan refugees in return and resettlement programmes. In addition, the study analysed the extent to which environmental concerns have been integrated into the Humanitarian Programme Cycle, particularly through the Environment Marker.
