The SHURA programme contributes to the reintegration of Afghan vulnerable returnees, IDPs and vulnerable families of the host communities, as a feasible durable solution, by enabling them access to serviceable land, secure tenure and fundamentally enhancing the carrying capacities of the urban neighbourhoods hosting the programme target population.
Objectives of Shura
- Facilitate reintegration, through the provision of well-located, serviceable land in proximity to appropriate livelihood opportunities in proximity to urban centres, secondary and tertiary cities and strategic district municipalities in provinces of high return.
- Fill the Humanitarian-Development Gap by facilitating the distribution of humanitarian/transitional assisstance in locations that have been identified for durable solutions; where returnees and IDPs have security of tenure, providing a platform for self-reliance among others
- Augment self-reliance through the delivery of permanent development interventions to ensure access to permanent housing.
- Mitigate the negative effects of unplanned influx of retunees and prevent further ad-hoc settlement in urban informal settlements.
