ACLED (Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project) is an organistaion that collects information on political violence and protest events from around the world. It provides researchers, policymakers, and practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of conflict trends and dynamics in the country.
The Afghanistan Core Dataset brings together data from a range of sources to provide a greater overall and comparative understanding of the current situation and context inside each district. The core indicators consist of key drivers (conflict, basic commodity prices, exclusion and marginalization, and disrupted access to life-saving services and income sources) and their major expected humanitarian impacts (food insecurity, cholera).
ACAPS tracks changes in these indicators and alerts the humanitarian community to emerging trends or risks that could overwhelm local coping mechanisms in Afghanistan, triggering a humanitarian emergency.
