    From October to December 2020, UNHCR supported over 2,100 refugees (850 households) in Obo, Central African Republic from South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo with cash assistance to cover food needs. Each household was allocated 9,000 XAF per person per month. Post-distribution monitoring (PDM) of this assistance was conduected in January 2021 with the objectives of understanding the efficiency of the distribution process, accountability to the refugees and risk and problems faced. The PDM included a household survey and focus group discussions.

    UNHCR conducted post-distribution monitoring (PDM) in February 2021 following cash-based interventions (CBI) for 2,378 refugees, asylum-seekers and returnees (930 households) in Abidjan, Bas Sassandra, Cavally, Guemon and Tonkpi, Côte d'Ivoire in 2020. The CBI aimed to address the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic Several forms of cash intervention were carried out with different objectives. For refugees and host populations, it mainly involved covering living expenses, housing costs, school fees, one-off assistance to survivors of gender-based violence and funds for income-generating activities. Ivorian refugees returning to Côte d'Ivoire from abroad received cash as part of their return package. With the exception of living expenses, that were distributed monthly, all other cash was distrubted once for each activity for the year.

    Chad hosts over 480,000 refugees from Sudan, Central African Republic and Nigeria. They live in camps and host communities in the east, south and west of the country. WFP, UNHCR and other partners have provided food and non-food assistance to meet their basic needs. The objective of this study was to evaluate the level of vulnerability and food security among the refugees supported by WFP and UNHCR in Chad. The study was jointly led by WFP and UNHCR in Chad.

    UNHCR increasingly uses Cash-Based Interventions (CBIs) as a preferred modality for delivering assistance, offering greater dignity and choice to forcibly displaced and stateless persons in line with UNHCR's core protection mandate. In order to ensure that the cash assistance provided meets the intended programme objectives and that desired outcomes are achieved, UNHCR conducts regular post-distribution and outcome monitoring with a sample or all of CBI recipients. Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) is a mechanism to collect feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of assistance. The underlying principle behind the process is linked to accountability, as well as a commitment to improve the quality and relevance of support provided, and related services. This CBI PDM took place in several locations in the province of Ituri, Democratic Republic of the Congo in July of 2020 for cash assistance that was provided between March and April 2020.

    The main purpose of this assessment is to present an overview of the situation and the priority needs of older persons on the move in Latin America, with a focus on some countries in the Andean region and the northern part of Central America. The assessment also includes the impact and worsening of older persons access to and exercise of their rights and services, under the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To this end, this assessment will provide data and evidence for decision-making, public-policy design, and the implementation of programmes that promote the rights of older persons on the move throughout the region and during the entire displacement cycle.

    Household data was collected from 8 localities across the five Darfur states (Tawilla, Assalaya, Yassin, Sheiria, Nertiti, Undukum, Gereida, Jebel Moon). The profiling exercises in Darfur are aimed at: i. informing PBF programming and Action Plan development in each Darfur state/locality; ii. provide the baseline of the agreed upon PBF outcome/output indicators (for later measurement of impact); and iii. inform broader HDPN programming beyond the Fund. The sample size consisted of 10,914 households with a total of 60,154 individuals.

    The data was collected using the High Frequency Survey (HFS), the new regional data collection tool & methodology launched in the Americas. The survey allowed for better reaching populations of interest with new remote modalities (phone interviews and self-administered surveys online) and improved sampling guidance and strategies. It includes a set of standardized regional core questions while allowing for operation-specific customizations. The core questions revolve around populations of interest's demographic profile, difficulties during their journey, specific protection needs, access to documentation & regularization, health access, coverage of basic needs, coping capacity & negative mechanisms used, and well-being & local integration. The data collected has been used by countries in their protection monitoring analysis and vulnerability analysis.

    The UNHCR Standardized Expanded Nutrition Surveys (SENS) provide regular nutrition data that plays a key role in delivering effective and timely interventions to ensure good nutritional outcomes among populations affected by forced displacement. UNHCR conducted an annual SENS nutrition surveys in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei Refugee Settlement. The 2017 annual Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) at the Kakuma Refugee Camps was conducted from 22nd November to 3rd December 2017. It was coordinated by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) with support from World Food Programme (WFP), International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Kenya Red Cross (KRC). The survey used SMART methodology and UNHCR SENS guidelines version 2 (2013) for implementation. While previous surveys indicated a steady decline in GAM prevalence between April 2010 and November 2014. There was a considerable increase in GAM prevalence in Kakuma from November 2015 and 2016. Though the difference was not statistically significant. However, in 2017 there has been a significant reduction in GAM prevalence in both Kakuma and Kalobeyei. There has also been a significant change in stunting for Kalobeyei, the same reduction was observed for Kakuma where stunting prevalence has reduced to below the 40% threshold of public health significance. Anaemia in children 6-59 months remains above the 40% threshold of public health significance for both survey areas but anaemia in women, 15-59 years was below 40%. A slight increase was observed in Kakuma while a reduction was observed in Kalobeyei. The November 2017 survey also shows an improvement in Vitamin A supplementation coverage, and water availability. Mosquito net ownership reduced for Kakuma and increased slightly in Kalobeyei. Mosquito net coverage for Kalobeyei remains far below the recommended 80% UNHCR target.
