    In 2016, REACH with the support of OFDA conducted the first area based assessment (ABA) in Ukraine focusing on access to basic services for the 100 government controlled cities and villages along the line of contact seperating the government controlled (GCA) and non government controlled areas (NGCA) of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. The assessment found that access to basic services in conflict-affected areas the assessed communities had been severely disrupted due to the disconnection between peripheries of large cities Donbas and the city centers now in non-governmental controlled areas (NGCA). As a result of the seperation between GCA and NGCA, settlements along the line of contact in the GCA have reorganised themselves inward towards government controlled urban centers. The networks of communities that access basic services unit geographies in government controlled areas have adjusted to the reality of a disconnection with non-government controlled cities by accessing all services and markets in reorganizing into new basic service units surrounding cities controlled by the Ukrainian Government. Based on findings from the area based assessment (ABA), this reorganization of basic services units in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblastsbas increases pressure on administrative services, housing, education and health services due to multiple potential factors including: i) the departure of qualified personnel ii) the arrival of conflict-displaced populations iii) and the relocation of of administrative centers. In order to support effective recovery and longer-term development planning it is critical to understand how the conflict has brought new challenges to service delivery in GCA urban centers close to the line of contact, particularly with regards to the new population flows following the effective closure of large urbanized areas in the NGCA. General Objective To understand the gaps and in the provision of basic services (by service providers) and the barriers to accessing basic services (by households) in raions that have been been separated by the contact line in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

    Primary data will be collected by means of a household-level survey designed with the participation of the humanitarian clusters in Somalia. Cluster leads are asked to outline information gaps and the type of data required to inform their strategic plans. Key indicators are developed by REACH with the substantive input of participating partners, and subsequently validated by the clusters. REACH will draft the household survey tool through an iterative consultation process with cluster partners and OCHA and is aligned, as much as possible, with the Joint Inter-Sectoral Analysis Framework (JIAF) which will serve as a common and structured method for assessing the severity of needs across different clusters. The assessment will use stratified cluster sampling at the district level using settlements as the clusters and households as the unit of measurement. For some districts, 2-stage stratified random sampling will be used instead of stratified cluster sampling for large urban centres, if it proves to be more efficient and logistically feasible for data collection. The sample will be stratified by population group, disaggregated by non-displaced communities, and IDP settlements; the sample will be further stratified by district to ensure coverage and comparison across the entire country (with the exception of inaccessible areas). In the case of cluster sampling, the minimum cluster size will be set to 6 households. The sample size will be adjusted for the design effect and will enable generalisation of the results to each of the two population strata in each district, with a 90% confidence level and a 10% margin of error.

    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).

    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.

    Data is collected in 1,664 communities across 105 sub-districts and 7 Governorates throughout Syria. Data collection and analysis take place on a monthly basis, with questionnaires distributed to all participants or enumerators at the beginning of each month. Questionnaires are completed over the course of two to three weeks by contacting Key Informants (KIs) to gather information about their area of knowledge. Once data collection is completed, data is translated, cleaned, and prepared for analysis. Averages for continuous variables are identified, while confidence levels are used for instances where multiple records have been submitted for the same village or neighbourhood. Data collected is triangulated with secondary data from multiple sources. As data collected via KIs, it should be considered only as indicative of the humanitarian situation in the time period assessed.

    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

    Since the end of January 2019, southern Idleb and northern Hama governorates have seen a significant escalation of conflict. Shelling and airstrikes intensified in the area, leading to a deterioration of the humanitarian situation. In response, REACH conducted a rapid needs assessment to provide actors with an update on the humanitarian situation. The latest conflict escalation affects an area that is home to an estimated 700,000 residents and internally displaced persons (IDPs), increasing vulnerability, and in some cases, leading to secondary and tertiary displacements. From late 2017, the region has witnessed a large-scale influx of IDPs, following escalations of conflict and displacements from formerly opposition-held areas in south-east Idleb, south-west Aleppo, Rural Damascus, Homs, Hama, Dar’a and Quneitra governorates. The increase in IDP population in Idleb governorate and surrounding areas has led to a growing strain on resources and an increase in inter-communal tensions in the region. Further complicating the situation, there has been increasing concern regarding a potential military offensive in the region since September 2018, with shelling and airstrikes occurring with increased frequency. While the mid-September 2018 announcement of a demilitarised zone put a pause on concerns over an imminent military offensive in the region, clashes have continued unabated. Data for this assessment was collected from 25-26 February 2019 in 85 opposition-controlled communities in 12 sub-districts via community-level key informant (KI) interviews. KIs were asked to report on the previous week (18 to 25 February). This dataset provides the findings for indicators on demographics, shelter, food, livelihoods, electricity & NFIs, WASH, health, education, protection, reported priority needs, and reported movement intentions.

    As the conflict in Eastern Ukraine is into its fourth year, ongoing and widespread ceasefire violations along the ‘line of contact’ and the restrictions on movement of people and goods continue to pose significant risks to civilian populations in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. 2017 and 2018 saw the conflict intensify, leading to a significant loss of lives, major concerns over the protection of civilians and significant damage to critical infrastructure. Overall, 3.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection . It is therefore necessary to update the previous multi-sector needs assessment reports (IAVA, Trend Analysis, Winter Assessment) with a new and relevant data, and further investigate the trends of the changing humanitarian situation on the ground through both secondary data review from other humanitarian actors, as well as primary field collection of data to fill the gaps identified in the humanitarian data available. General Objective To understand and track changes in humanitarian needs of populations living in conflict affected areas in government controlled areas of Ukraine.

    Recognizing an information gap within existing road network datasets in the Southern Teknaf camps of Coxs Bazar District (Camps 24-27 and Nayapara Registered Camp), REACH dispached field teams to the area for a roads and paths mapping exercise from November 14-15, 2018. Areas within and on the edges of the camps were divided into grid cells, through which REACH field teams systematically traversed all paths while carrying GPS tracking devices. This dataset was then merged with the existing OpenStreetMap (OSM) roads and paths dataset for the area to provide a comprehensive map of roads and footpaths in and around the camps for mapping and spatial analysis purposes. When present in this dataset, OpenStreetMap attributes and identifiers have been preserved. This exercise was carried out with the support of European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO)

    Prolonged drought conditions have contributed to a rapid deterioration of the humanitarian context in Somalia, since early 2016. Caused by four successive seasons of below average rainfall, drought has resulted in substantial livestock herd depletion and a reduction in cereal production, while cereal prices have risen to well above the average, resulting in reduced household access to food and income. Additionally, above average rainfall in the first half of 2018 caused severe flooding across parts of South Central Somalia, and coastal areas in Puntland and Somaliland, causing further waves of displacement and destruction of agricultural land. Parallel to these climatic trends, insecurity and the presence of active armed groups continue to limit humanitarian access, most notably in the South Central region of Somalia. In light of this evolving context, the need for integrated and harmonised information systems to support both immediate and long-term humanitarian response is ever more crucial, particularly through comprehensive assessments and mapping activities. To address these information needs, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), in partnership with REACH conducted a Joint National Multi-Cluster Needs Assessment (JMCNA) across Somalia. Households were sampled for statistical representativeness stratified by internally displaced person (IDP) and host community households at the district level, with a 92% confidence level and a 10% margin of error. More information on the methodology, in the attached methodology note.

    Idleb governorate and the surrounding opposition-held areas of western Aleppo and north-western Hama governorates* host one of the largest IDP populations in Syria. Since late 2017, following an escalation of violence in north-western and southern Syria, the region has witnessed the further arrival of a substantial number of IDPs. Large cross-line displacements from Eastern Ghouta, northern Homs and southern Hama, as well as Da'ra and Quneitra governorates, beginning in March 2018, have led to a significant increase of the IDP population in the region and to a growing strain on resources and services in the region. While humanitarian assistance is reaching both IDP and resident populations, major gaps remain. In order to address such gaps, REACH has conducted a needs assessment to inform humanitarian actors of IDP and resident populations' priority needs and to address critical information gaps on the humanitarian conditions of IDPs and residents living in communities in the region. This data set provides the findings from this assessment. Findings presented in this data set are based on data collected by REACH as part of a needs assessment focused on IDP and resident populations living in communities of Idleb governorate and surrounding areas. Data was collected in 362 communities across 30 sub-districts between 12 and 20 August 2018. Data was collected at the community level, with enumerators interviewing between 2 and 7 key informants (KIs) per community and with KIs selected based on their knowledge of IDP and resident populations in the community and sector-specific expertise. Communities were assessed based on available data on total populations, focusing on those reported to have large IDP and resident populations and those that have received a high number of IDP arrivals in the two months prior to the start of data collection. Collected primary data was further triangulated through available secondary sources.

    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.
