    This assessment was conducted as a follow-up monitoring exercise to the initial shelter and WASH needs assessment conducted in December 2013 and the first shelter and WASH response monitoring assessment in March 2014. The purpose was to understand remaining needs of the affected population, the differing needs of vulnerable groups and outcomes of the shelter sector response. There was a strong focus on assessing the extent to which households were living in safe and adequate dwellings based on shelter recover guidelines developed by the cluster. This information is critical for the humanitarian community and more specifically, the shelter sector, to understand gaps in current assistance, progress in reference to the Strategic Response Plan (SRP) and the extent to which the affected population is ready to move into the recovery phase. 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) in natural disasters and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in conflict as cluster co-leads.

    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.

    Kenya’s commitment to close down Dadaab by mid-2017, the world’s largest refugee camp hosting over 300,000 Somalis, is putting increasing pressure on service delivery and infrastructure in Somalia. By October 2016, an estimate of 31,226 Somali people have returned from Kenya, the majority of which are heading to Kismayo, Baidoa, Luuq and Mogadishu. While the caseload of returnees is expected to continue growing over the coming months, there is no clear understanding of movement patterns of returnees or internally displaced persons which further complicates the attempts by humanitarian organisations to provide for required services. The absence of a CCCM cluster in Somalia means that information on humanitarian needs and gaps has been limited to ad-hoc and un-coordinated assessments. The Kismayo IDP settlement assessment was triggered as a result of the need for a multi-cluster, area-based and coordinated information approach for humanitarian planning and service delivery in informal IDP settlements in Somalia. The Kismayo IDP Settlement Assessment was carried out with financial support from USAID-OFDA and ECHO and in close collaboration with clusters (WASH, Shelter & NFIs, Education, Food Security, Health, Nutrition and Protection).

    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.

    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).

    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 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).

    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
