Detailed Site Assessment: Afmadow district, Lower Juba Region, Somalia

The Detailed Site Assessment (DSA) was triggered in coordination with the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster in order to provide the humanitarian community with up-to-date information on location of internally displaced person (IDP) sites, the conditions and capacity of the sites and the humanitarian needs of the residents. The first round of the DSA took place from October 2017 to March 2018 assessing a total of 1,843 sites in 48 districts. The second round of the DSA took place from 1 September 2018 to 31 January 2019 assessing a total of 1778 sites in 57 districts.

A grid pattern approac was used to identify all IDP sites in a specific area. In each identified site, two key informants (KIs) were interviewed: the site manager or community leader and a women's representative, to ensure the perspectives of different groups were captured2 . KI responses were aggregated for each site. These were then aggregated further to the district level, with each site having an equal weight. Data analysis was done by thematic sectors, that is, protection, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), shelter, displacement, food security, health and nutrition, education and communication.

This factsheet presents a summary of profiles of assessed sites3 in Afmadow District along with needs and priorities of IDPs residing in these sites. As the data is captured through KIs, findings should be considered indicative rather than generalisable.
