This map illustrates IDP shelter changes within Kismayo as visible in satellite imagery between 14 September 2011 and 10 May 2012.

This map illustrates changes in IDP settlement densities as visible in satellite imagery acquired 10 May 2012 and compared to imagery from 2 April 2012. IDP settlement areas defined by field staff were reviewed to determine changes in shelter density between these two dates. Of the 740 settlement areas reviewed, 20 had minor reductions in shelters, 11 had major reductions, 515 showed no change, and 2 indicated increases. Additionally 192 settlement areas were unassessed due primarily to cloud cover or lack of imagery and areas outside settlements were not reviewed.

Summary: A total of 513 spatially distinct IDP shelter concentrations were identified (as of 2 May 2012) within Mogadishu, representing a net increase of 160 IDP sites since 18 October 2011. An estimate of the total number of IDP structures located in Mogadishu indicated a minimum figure of at least 74,000 mostly informal shelters. The rapid process of new IDP settlement formation is occurring within multiple areas of the city, including traditional IDP areas near the former National University as well as in the eastern portion of the city, formerly under the control of al Shabaab.

This report provides a detailed analysis of spatially-distinct concentrations of IDP shelters within the urban extent of Mogadishu, and assesses the date periods the camp sites were likely formed as well as the larger settlement patterns, trends and security dynamics underlining IDP movements. Identified IDP sites were further assessed for construction/shelter type, specifically looking for the presence of emergency tent shelters, a common barometer of active support from international aid organizations and NGOs.

This assessment of the Halowed camp in Dolo Ado was based on a quantitative analysis for Somali refugees fleeing the drought and conflict in Somalia. A semi-automated shelter detection analysis was conducted using satellite imagery recorded on 11 August 2011. A total of approximately 215 tents and building structures were identified with a high degree of confidence within the camp site encompassing a current area of approximately 0.0274 meters squared. Approximately and additional 25 fixed buildings, likely allocated for camp infrastructure and staff, are observed in the camp.

Extended drought is causing a severe food crisis in the Horn of Africa with parts of Somalia so severely affected that no less than 100,000 people are moving within Somalia and towards neighbouring Kenya and Ethiopia in search of emergency assistance. According to OCHA reports over 11 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the Horn of Africa. The famine is expected to spread across all regions in southern Somalia soon unless urgent measures are put in place.

In the north-eastern section of the border town of Dolo there are 3 small concentrations of likely informal shelters, numbering 75 in total which were erected between 26 October 2010 and 17 July 2011. The average size of these probable shelters is relatively small (<10m2) and informally built on marginal land at the northern edge of town, and thus could represent locations of Somali refugees. This is a preliminary assessment and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT at the contact information below.
