Current Operations
Targeted Assistance to Refugees from Afghanistan and Iraq

This operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 3 (see below).
Despite efforts to facilitate the repatriation of refugees living in the Islamic Republic of Iran, a significant number of poor and food-insecure refugee households continue to require humanitarian support, including WFP food assistance. In 2012, 840,500 Afghan refugees and 45,000 refugees from Iraq were registered in Iran. Although the majority of the refugees live in urban areas, about 30,000 live in 19 refugee settlements, with very limited livelihood options.
