    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.

    UNHCR uses Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) as a mechanism to collect refugees' feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of the assistance items they receive. The underlying principle behind the process is linked to accountability, as well as a commitment to improve the quality and relevance of support provided. 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 refugee recipients. UNHCR supported 109 refugee households in 11 provinces in China with cash assistance in Quarter 2, 2021. The CBI PDM was conducted between June and July 2021 to assess outcomes of the assistance. More than half the households receiving cash assistance are individuals without family. UNHCR’s cash assistance is beneficial to its recipients as respondents point to improved living conditions (90%), relieved financial burdens (90%/75) and reduction in feeling of stress (96%). In terms of coping strategies, almost 68% of all beneficiaries had to take out a new loan or borrowed money over the last three months.

    The COVID-19 Vaccination Survey in China was conducted in July 2021 to understand refugees' accessibility and willingness to receive a COVID-19 vaccination in China. UNHCR stresses that no one can be left behind in the global effort against COVID-19 and is monitoring the inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers in vaccination plans around the world. At the time, Chinese government policy did not provide free vaccines for foreigners without social security. The survey results however show that this policy was implemented with some flexibility, because among the few that were vaccinated already, more than half received a free COVID-19 vaccine. Some refugees reported difficulties or lack of information about vaccine registration or identity documents to book an appointment. Results further show that even though most are willing to get vaccinated, anti-vaccine sentiments are driven by fear of side effects.

The COVID-19 CBI PDM Household Survey was conducted in Malaysia between August to September 2021. In Malaysia, UNHCR provided urgent cash assistance to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19, which hit especially urban refugees hard. Some 80 percent of the cash recipients experienced loss of income during the movement control order in Malaysia. Despite the overall positive impact of cash assistance, 80 percent of the households resorted to negative coping strategies to meet basic needs, highlighting that the unmet needs are vast despite assistance.

    The COVID-19 Socioeconomic-/Cash-Based Intervention Post-Distribution Monitoring (CBI PDM) was conducted in September 2021 to assess the needs of the refugees in Eastern Nepal and Kathmandu. The survey consists of two parts. The first part of the survey measures the impact of COVID-19 on refugees' knowledge, behavior and health as well as refugees' economic livelihoods and the second part monitors the latest cash assistance programme. As a response to COVID-19, UNHCR has since the start of the pandemic launched multiple new cash grants and expanded existing programs. UNHCR's cash assistance complements governments' efforts by contributing with an additional safety net for vulnerable refugees and others left behind. Also during the course of 2021, UNHCR has continued to support the COVID-19 emergency response with cash assistance.

    The Rapid Needs Assessment (RNA)/Cash-Based Intervention Post-Distribution (CBI PDM) Monitoring Household Survey was conducted in Thailand in May 2020. The RNA and PDM were designed as a phone-based survey targeting urban refugees and asylum seekers in Thailand to assess their needs and evaluate the effectiveness of the CBI program in light of COVID-19. UNHCR Thailand and its partners work to ensure that the protection needs of urban refugees and asylum seekers are met during the COVID-19 pandemic. Having observed increased levels of vulnerability relating to restrictions on movement, loss of livelihood opportunities and access to healthcare, the RNA aims to strengthen the understanding of the situation, need and vulnerabilities of the forced displaced population. This survey focuses on COVID-19 knowledge, experience, behaviour and norms, health, education, employment and access to basic necessities. The findings aim to provide evidence to evaluate and design protection and programme interventions. Since May 2016, UNHCR Thailand has been using multi-purpose CBI PDM to provide protection, assistance and services to the most vulnerable refugees in the urban areas. The number of urban refugees approaching UNHCR for financial support has more than doubled since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure that UNHCR’s multi purpose CBI framework for urban refugees in Thailand is effective, the monitoring was conducted simultaneously with the RNA. PDM is a mechanism to collect and understand refugees' feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of the cash assistance. The findings of the PDM support the assessment of the impact of CBI for urban refugees in Thailand affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the appropriateness of funding levels, distribution modalities and the use of cash to support refugees.

    A total of 1,554 individual surveys were completed (post-data cleaning) across 11 Libyan Mantikas, namely Tripoli, Misrata, Azzawya, Al Jabal Al Gharbi, Aljfara, and Zwara in the West; Benghazi, Ejdabia and Alkufra in the East; Sebha and Murzuq in the South. A quota based non-probability sampling method was chosen for this assessment, covering only shortlisted locations where migrants and refugees are known to be based. This is because: i) migrants and refugees are difficult to locate in Libya; ii) data on the numbers and location of migrants and refugees are indicative only (thus preventing national-level stratification); and iii) migrants and refugees are not evenly dispersed throughout the Libyan territory but rather known to be clustered in certain (usually urban) areas. Quotas were designed to reflect a grouping of migrants and refugees from the following regions: West and Central Africa, East Africa, Middle East and North Africa, South and East Asia. An overall quota of 10% was set for female respondents, reflecting the estimated gender distribution of the refugee and migrant population, according to IOM-DTM. Given the sampling strategy, results are indicative and aggregation is only recommended at the national or regional level for both the total population and the region-of-origin sub_groups, or mantika level for the total population only. Aggregation by gender is only recommended at the national level. Due to the precarious health situation following the COVID-19 outbreak, surveys have been conducted over the phone as a precautionary measure. Phone numbers were sourced from a combination of CSO contact lists, UNHCR contact lists and INGO databases. This MSNA was conducted at the individual level, in contrast to the 2021 Libyan MSNA. For the purposes of this MSNA, the individual level unit of measurement was deemed more indicative as it has been recorded that the proportion of migrants and refugees travelling and living alone in Libya is much higher than those living in traditional households, therefore limiting the applicability of household level analysis in this context. However, the 2021 MSNA encompasses a separate component (forthcoming), aiming to gather information on education and child protection within the target population groups, by means of a household-level survey.

    This Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) was initiated by UNHCR’s Sub-Office in Cox’s Bazar to monitor its distribution of cash to refugees as part of a pilot cash programme, as well as to collect the feedback of refugees on the cash distribution itself. It was designed with built-in COVID-19 prevention measures. UNHCR uses Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) as a mechanism to collect refugees' feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of the assistance items they receive. 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. Usually the surveys that form the basis of the assessment are conducted soon after the distribution of relief items is completed.

    UNHCR Serbia CBI project provides targeted financial assistance to UNHCR's Population of concern (PoC) with monthly cash grants, with a view to address the most acute material needs of refugees and asylum seekers in private accommodation. The overall objective of the project is to ensure that PoC have sufficient basic and domestic items, through the delivery of monthly cash assistance meant to cover expenses helping them to settle and stabilize their life upon displacement. This assistance aims to support a longer-term self-reliance with a view to reduce vulnerability, including prevention of high-risk behaviour (survival sex, child labour…). Besides the regular monthly payments, the project covers for emergency needs as one-time cash payment. UNHCR provides CBI to the most vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees, through direct implementation. Current CBI SOPs were endorsed at the beginning of 2019. The CBI Committee, consisting of representatives of Durable Solutions, Protection and Programme Units decides on allocation, extension or withdrawal of cash assistance to each beneficiary. CBI is meant to help PoCs address their basic needs, including alternatives to camps. The SCRM provides rental subsidy to persons granted international protection, during the first year upon recognition of their status. After that period, and if there are gaps in allocation, UNHCR provides CBI. As opposed to SCRM, UNHCR can also provide CBI to asylum seekers in private accommodation. In July, UNHCR 47 HH/89 persons received CBI. Half of these households started receiving CBI due to loss of jobs during the COVID-19 crisis.

    Located in rural northern Uganda, Rhino Camp is home to more than 80,000 refugees3 – mostly South Sudanese who fled since July 2016. Other Rhino Camp residents come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Sudan, as well as the host Ugandan community. 74% of all heads of household are women,4 and Rhino Camp is one of a growing number of refugee settlements across nine UNHCR operations where solar street lamps are in use. Between April and June 2015 UNHCR installed some three dozen community lights in 50% of Rhino Camp’s 14 villages. As demand for community lighting far exceeded available funds, UNHCR worked with the refugee community and its partner the Danish Refugee Council to prioritize the strategic placement of lights within villages. The partners jointly selected locations where (1) refugees were prone to nighttime violence, theft or other safety risks, and (2) lights would promote constructive night-time activity. Using a 72-question survey, researchers asked respondents what day- and night-time6 activities they and their children do, and whether they do these activities in lit or unlit locations. Researchers then asked respondents if they feared or had been victims of something bad while doing these activities. The phrase something bad is the English translation for the most commonly used expressions – in Nuer, Dinka, Bari, and Kiswahili – of being a victim of an aggressive act or encountering danger. Survey responses reveal that the bad experiences that respondents most commonly fear are sexual and physical violence, theft, verbal harassment, injury, and encounters with animals
