La bonne disponibilité laitière et l’augmentation des revenus issus des prémices ont aussi contribué à augmenter la consommation alimentaire dans ces zones durant le mois de septembre.

Intikane Hosting Area, Opened since April 2013 - Camp Profile as of July 2014

Context

The refugee hosting area (nomadic area) is a new concept developed by UNHCR with local authorities and communities in an attempt to adapt to the lifestyle of nomadic refugees. It differs from the traditional set-up of a refugee camp and allows refugees to settle freely in a vast pasture area with their livestock. The first "hosting area" was opened in Intekan in April 2013 with the successful relocation of nearly 8,000 people and their animals to the area. Previously, the refugees lived in spontaneous sites located at the border (Agando and Chinwaren).
