Cameroon: Displacement estimates in South-West region (as of 16 August 2018)

This document presents the estimated number of displaced people in South West Region as of August 2018. The figure is based on a working session with civil society organisations in the region, held in August 2018, in which displacement data from across the divisions were triangulated. The data come from a variety of sources including key informants, head counts and estimations from 2018 projected population at subdivision level.

Key Points :

  • People are displaced in multiple locations across the region, both rural and urban, with different needs and facing different challenges.

  • Humanitarian responses need to be contextualised.

  • Displacement in South West region is fluid with some people displaced multiple times.

  • Displacement is ongoing and estimated figures will be reviewed periodically to reflect changes as they are identified.
