The International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) PLACES delivers area-based response in conflict- and displacement-affected communities in Afghanistan. Area-based response puts existing communities’ capacities at the centre to avoid replication of structures, and provides integrated rather than sectoral assistance. Following in-depth assessments and engagement processes, PLACES implements multi-sectoral transition and recovery assistance building on existing governance, basic services and market systems. Such response is designed on the premise that evidence-based and participatory planning can give affected populations a meaningful voice in local socioeconomic recovery, build community cohesion and resilience, and create trust in local stakeholders through increased engagement and accountability.
