UNHCR’s Shelter Assistance Programmeme has provided, since 2002, nearly 216,000 units of shelter to vulnerable returnees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) throughout Afghanistan. The programmeme has been subjected to technical and financial reviews and its design and implementation procedures have been improved over the years. However its contribution to reintegration outcomes, defined as achieving sustainable return and parity between returnees and other members of the local community, has not been researched. This evaluation sought to fill this gap. The methodology had two key components: 1. A shelter beneficiary survey and 2. A shelter beneficiary evaluation.
