Dadaab Movement and Intentions Monitoring: Dadaab Refugee Complex Garissa County, Kenya (November 2018)



As of September 2018, close to 240,0001 mostly Somali refugees reside in Dadaab refugee complex. With continued conflict, instability and drought, causing new displacement in Somalia as well as reduced humanitarian funding in Dadaab, there is need to strengthen the knowledge of future return intentions and movement patterns of the refugee population. Since May 2017, REACH has worked with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) on developing tools and methodologies for data collection in the three camps of Dadaab refugee complex (Dagahaley, IFO, Hagadera).

In July 2018 REACH conducted a survey in Dadaab refugee complex with findings showing a majority of the households (42%) not willing to return to Somalia due to fear of conflict. This factsheet provides an overview of another round of assessment conducted in November 2018 across the three camps of Dadaab refugee complex.

Primary data was collected through household surveys from 14 to 16 November, 2018. Households were randomly sampled to a 95% confidence level and a 5% margin of error. A total of 381 HHs were interviewed. This level is guaranteed for all questions that apply to the entire surveyed population of each camp. Findings relating to a subset of the population may have a wider margin of error. The maximum margin of error of subsets is indicated with ‘MOE.’
