    The Humanitarian Situation Overview Syria (HSOS) project, formerly known as the Area of Origin (AoO) project, conducts direct data collection using a Key Informant (KI) methodology at the community (village/neighbourhood) level in northwest Syria (3-6 key informants and one form submitted per community). The overall objective of the project is to improve humanitarian access to information on needs and the general humanitarian situation across northwest Syria to help inform aid planning and enhance the understanding of the humanitarian context within Syria. The coverage spans 1,051 communities across Idleb, Aleppo, and northern Hama. Face-to-face interviews are conducted when possible, otherwise they are done remotely (via phone using enumerators' KI networks in assessed locations). Once primary data is collected and cleaned, it is then triangulated with available secondary data sources (including other REACH products, relevant humanitarian publications by partners and other actors, and reliable news sources).

    Findings presented in this data set are based on data collected by REACH as part of a rapid camps and sites assessment to provide insight on: How many new IDP arrivals are arriving to camps, informal settlements, collective centres, or transit reception centres reported at the site level since Dec. 18th Movement intentions of the new IDP arrivals in the coming two weeks Identify priority needed items by sector of the new IDP arrivals. Data was collected in 150 communities across eight sub-districts in Northern Idleb and Western Aleppo from 25 to 27 December 2019 through REACH enumerators who surveyed one Key Informant (KI) per community on internally displaced persons' (IDPs) camps and sites nearest to their community. In order to qualify as camp or site, a site had to have 5 or more IDP households living on its premises. 1,253 camps and sites were assessed across 150 communities. IDP numbers solely represent newly arrived IDPs (5 or more HH) to planned camps, informal settlements, collective centres, and transit reception centres, and do not account for total camp or site IDP populations or IDPs within the host communities. The definition of IDPs used by enumerators for this assessment was ‘Individuals or groups of people who have been forced to leave their homes or places of habitual residence, in particular as a result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalised violence, violations of human rights, or natural or man-made disasters, and who have not crossed an international border'. The definition of planned camp was 'A planned camp is a place where IPDs find accomodation on purpose-built sites, where service infrastructure is provided and distribution take place. The camp is established by an accountable humanitarian actor and to the extent possible, meet the minimum SPHERE standards'. The definition of informal settlements was 'Otherwise known as a self-settled camp or a spontaneous site, hosting 5 or more IDP households. IDPs may settle in a camp that is independent of assistance from the government or humanitarian community. They are a group of tented, or other types of housing units, or unfinished buildings established by IDPs themselves or by non-experienced actors, often erected on land that the occupants have no legal claim to. IDPs intend to stay in this location for an extended period of time. At the moment, most of the so-called IDP camps in Syria fall under this category. ' The definition of collective centres was 'A pre-existing building or other structure used to host 5 or more IDP households, e.g. public buildings, schools, mosques, private collective building' The definition of transit reception centres was 'Otherwise known as transit camps, they provide temporary accomodation for displaced persons pending transfer to a suitable, safe, longer term camp, or at the end of an operation as a staging point of return. Reception/transit centres are usually either intermediate or short-term installations. These sites are often established during extremely large displacements.' Information should be considered as reflective of the situation at the time of data collection, given the dynamic situation in the region. In addition, information should be considered as indicative, and not representative, of the situation.

    The Hard to Reach (HTR) Assessment was implemented by REACH Initiative in Afghanistan, in coordination with the Inter Cluster Coordination Team (ICCT) in country. The assessment aimed to address the humanitarian information gap on multi-sector needs and vulnerabilities of the population residing in hard-to-reach districts, as identified by the Humanitarian Access Group (HAG). The assessment employed a qualitative methodology of Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) across 100 selected HTR districts, covering 23 provinces. A total 3,114 KIIs were conducted between 2 August and 22 September 2019. As a qualitative methodology based on purposive sampling, findings should be considered indicative only.

    Based on requests from ECHO partners, REACH has worked to compile and map the location of cyclone shelters in Ukhia and Teknaf in the two Upazilas most affected by the Rohingya refugee influx of August 2017, in order to orient and inform humanitarian actors working in these locations. This database includes three lists of shelters: First, a list of shelters as designated on lists provided by the Cox's Bazar District Relief and Rehabilitation Officer (DRRO). Second, a list of cyclone shelters designated by the DRRO with additional structures reported to be shelters according to lists provided by the Cyclone Preparedness Programme (CPP), the District Disaster Managemen Plan (DDMP), Upazila Nirbahi Officers (UNOs), UNDP, IOM, UNHCR, WFP, the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED), and the Comprehensive Disaster Management Programme (CDMP). The third list mirrors the second list but also includes all of alternative names used by different agencies.

    In early 2019, UNICEF and the Cox's Bazar WASH sector identified a need to comprehensively map key WASH infrastructure using physical unique identifier (UUID) tags, in order to produce a database containing information about each piece of infrastructure across the camps. The objectives of this effort were to facilitate accurate, consistent spatial identification of unique infrastructure by all interested actors, to provide a baseline ‘snapshot’ of WASH infrastructure functionality at the time of coding, and to establish a common dataset to be used by all partners. The core infrastructure being covered by this exercise includes tubewells (complete), latrines, and bathing facilities (both ongoing).

    The overall objective of the assessment was to inform multi-cluster humanitarian programming for the Afghanistan response by identifying inter-sectoral needs and how they inter-relate across different geographic locations and population groups outlined in the Humaniarian Needs Overview (HNO). The Whole of Afghanistan (WoA) Assessment was based on a mixed methods approach, employing a quantified household-level survey, key informant interviews, and focus group discussions to collect a wide range of data. The presented dataset includes the data from the household-level survey, generalisable at the provincial level for all population groups combined with a 95% confidence level and 5% margin of error, and generalisable at the regional level for each population group individually with a confident level of 95% and margin of error of 5%. This was done to capture inter-sectoral needs of displaced and host households in each province of Afghanistan.

    This shapefile represents digitization work carried out by UNOSAT and REACH from March-May 2019. Work is ongoing and this shapefile is reflective of digitization efforts up to 7 May 2019. As future iterations and improvements to the footprints are made, additional versions will be released. The majority of digitization work was carried out using Januray 2019 NPM-IOM drone imagery. The specific images used are provided in the attribute table. The original classification scheme developed by UNOSAT was comprised of two structure classes: "Structure" and "Bridge." An area based classification was then performed in which all polygons < 5 m2 were reclassified as "< 5m2 - Likely Latrine, Tubewell, or Shower." All polygons > 5 m2 also retained the UNOSATs original classification. Additionally, attribute fields containing camp name information, and the image source information were added. Limitations: The work has not been ground truthed and is based on expert interpretation of UAV imagery. In addition to relying on imagery interpretation, the footprints are bound by the limitations present in the UAV images that were utilized. Credits: UNOSAT- REACH, 2019

    This dataset comprises of 644 facilities that were classified as not exposed to a flood or landslide hazard within the 21 Kutupalong Refugee Camps to assess which facilities would be optimal for further shelter upgrades and reinforcement. An index was created for prioritization and of these 644 sites, 224 were identified as having optimal indicators for further site visits. Corresponding maps for these 224 sites can be found on the REACH Resource Centre or ReliefWeb. It should be noted that ALL 644 facilities not exposed to a flood or landslide hazard should be explored as viable options for awareness raising to the local Camp/Majhee populations. For further information regarding the indicators used for the analysis please see the caveats section below.

    In early November, WHO initiated a joint WHO/GoB/UNFPA/UNHCR/IOM/UNICE data collection exercise of all health facilities within and near the Rohingya refugee sites, with the aim of mapping facility locations. The first version was published on the 18th November with data collected between the 8th and 12th of November. This second version is an update to the previous version and contains information collected until December 12th, 2017. However, due to the highly dynamic nature of the situation, new health facilities are still being constructed and others removed. It is therefore important to note that this may not be comprehensive or truly representative of infrastructure at the time of publication. Also note that the spatial accuracy of this dataset is at best just under 5m, which can influence the analysis of infrastructure coverage.

    The number of families enduring long periods of displacement in Afghanistan is increasing. Although it has often been presumed that those displaced for long periods eventually adapt to their surroundings and integrate into their host community, this assessment report shows that this is not the case. Isolated from their social networks, internally displaced persons (IDPs) displaced over a long period of time struggle to secure regular employment, adequate shelter and are often food insecure. This prolonged IDP (PIDP) assessment report is designed to identify the needs and vulnerabilities of those displaced for prolonged periods of time, beyond the initial emergency displacement period.

    This dataset was collected as a part of a follow-up monitoring exercise after an initial assessment of Shelter and WASH needs conducted in December 2013. The purpose of this monitoring assessment was to determine the extent of shelter and WASH assistance, namely what has been provided to beneficiaries and to assess whether there were people that had not received assistance. With a focus on measuring recovery trends, the assessment aims to understand whether households are building back better and to understand beneficiary satisfaction with assistance received and awareness of recovery practices. The assessment is also intended to inform identification and targeting of key vulnerable groups. The assessment was conducted by REACH as part of its partnership with the Global Shelter Cluster. In the Philippines, the shelter cluster is led by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and supported by the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) as cluster leads. The WASH Cluster Rapid Assessment Team (RAT) provided the assessment with technical and logistical support both remotely and directly in the field in collaboration with the Shelter Cluster.

    On the 26th of October 2015, a large scale earthquake caused shelter damage throughout much of northern and central Afghanistan. During August 2016, the REACH Initiative (supported by ACTED, AfghanAid and People in Need) conducted a shelter response evaluation in 3 districts of Afghanistan on behalf of the Shelter Cluster. The aim of the assessment was to evaluate shelter interventions and locate possible intervention gaps in order to inform the shelter cluster of Afghanistan of the current shelter context and needs of earthquake affected families. The assessment consisted of three specific areas of investigation: 1. To monitor change in sheltering conditions for families 2. To evaluate the value of various shelter interventions in allowing families to recover and to identify possible gaps 3. To determine recovery limitations and successes relating to vulnerable groups
