To understand the evolving priority needs of the refugees, in July 2018 an inter-agency Multi-Sector Needs Assessment (MSNA), coordinated by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) with technical support from REACH, was conducted in 31 refugee sites using a household survey methodology.
Results of this MSNA are generalizable to the aggregate level with 95% confidence level and 5% margin of error. This dashboard presents an analysis of data collected from 3,171 households between July 2-31 2018. Produced by REACH, the full July 2018 narrative report, as well as the camp level factsheets can be found via the links below.
SHELTER & NON-FOOD ITEMS
Reported access to fuel distributions varied substantially by camp. On average, 52% of households reported receiving cooking fuel in the 30 days prior to data collection. However, in nine camps, 90% of households or more reported receiving fuel, yet in nine different camps, less than 10% of surveyed households reported receiving fuel. The most commonly reported urgent NFI needs across all camps were fuel (75%), cooking stoves (57%) and solar lamps (53%). These items are also distributed as key NFIs.
