Summary

This report demonstrates how Afghan mobility is the result of a range of factors related to economic conditions and prolonged conflict within the country. Between April 2021 and August 2021 (Round 3 of SDM), various provinces of Afghanistan were affected by active conflict, which was followed by the fall of the government in Afghanistan on 15 August 2021. This resulted in civilian casualties, the loss of livelihoods, internal displacement, and cross-border mobility. Therefore, the decisions to leave Afghanistan and choose a destination country revolved around multiple intersections of these factors as opposed to an identifiable, single reason.
