    The GDS presence layer is a geographic representation of the UNHCR operational presence in the countries where UNHCR is operating. It shows the diverse types of presence including temporary presence such as Field Units. Each office is either Active or Inactive depending on the operational status reported by the field. The status of the GIS layer represents the current operational presence in the world.

    Kenya hosts over half a million refugees, who, along with their hosts in urban and camp areas, face difficult living conditions and limited socioeconomic opportunities. Most refugees in Kenya live in camps located in the impoverished counties of Turkana (40 percent) and Garissa (44 percent), while 16 percent inhabit urban areas—mainly in Nairobi but also in Mombasa and Nakuru. Refugees in Kenya are not systematically included in national surveys, creating a lack of comparable socioeconomic data on camp-based and urban refugees, and their hosts. As the third of a series of surveys focusing on closing this gap, this Socioeconomic Survey of Urban Refugees's aim is to understand the socioeconomic needs of urban refugees in Kenya, especially in the face of ongoing conflicts, environmental hazards, and others shocks, as well as the recent government announcement to close Kenya’s refugee camps, which highlights the potential move of refugees from camps into urban settings The SESs are representative of urban refugees and camp-based refugees in Turkana County. For the Kalobeyei 2018 and Urban 2020–21 SESs, households were randomly selected from the UNHCR registration database (proGres), while a complete list of dwellings, obtained from UNHCR’s dwelling mapping exercise, was used to draw the sample for the Kakuma 2019 SES. The Kalobeyei SES and Kakuma SES were done via Computer-Assisted Personal Interviews (CAPI). Due to COVID-19 social distancing measures, the Urban SES was collected via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI). The Kalobeyei SES covers 6,004 households; the Kakuma SES covers 2,127 households; and the Urban SES covers 2,438 households in Nairobi, Nakuru, and Mombasa. Questionnaires are aligned with national household survey instruments, while additional modules are added to explore refugee-specific dynamics. The SES includes modules on demographics, household characteristics, assets, employment, education, consumption, and expenditure, which are aligned with the Kenya Integrated Household Budget Survey (KIHBS) 2015–16 and the recent Kenya Continuous Household Survey (KCHS) 2019. Additional modules on access to services, vulnerabilities, social cohesion, mechanisms for coping with lack of food, displacement trajectories, and durable solutions are administered to capture refugee-specific challenges.

    Registration in Uganda is carried out by the Government of Uganda through the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) with support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). In October 2021, OPM and UNHCR commenced a joint verification and individual profiling exercise (IPE) targeting 1,549,181 refugees and asylum seekers consisting of 388,989 households residing in all settlements and urban areas in Uganda. The main population groups are the South Sudanese (61%), Congolese (29%), Burundi (3%), Somali (3%) and the remaining 3% being refugees and asylum seekers from 27 different countries. The exercise is expected to be completed by end of October 2022. The exercise aims to verify the refugee population in Uganda, issue new generation refugee documents (QR compatible) and assess the social economic profiles of refugee households through Individual profiling. Verification will be combined with individual profiling using a desk bound assessment questionnaire, with validation of profiling data through sampling by making home visits. 10% of the verified households will be sampled based on strata covering settlement, country of origin, ethnicity, household with persons with special needs, family composition and year of arrival. By mid July 2022, verification/individual profiling was complete in 6 priority settlements (Imvepi, Kyaka II, Kyangwali, Nakivale, Oruchinga and Rwamwanja) with 9,480 home visits undertaken.
