Community Structures – Swabi

In Swabi, at district level just one ISLAHI (Welfare) committee is active. However, at the grassroots, a number of different committees are active in village and Union Councils, working for the welfare of the people. However, no committees are actively supporting urban refugees.

Notably, at each police station, a conflict resolution council has been formed. The relationship with the local law enforcement agencies is tense and often not very cordial.

Urban refugees in Swabi have at most the bare minimum of information regarding UNHCR programmes.

SACH, a UNHCR IP, is working in urban areas and is providing legal assistance to urban refugees.
