Multi-Sector Needs Assessment: Dagahaley Refugee Camp - Garissa County, Kenya, August 2018



There remain close to 208,000 registered refugees in the Dadaab camps, mostly of Somali orgin. With continued conflict, instability and drought, causing new displacement in Somalia and reduced humanitarian funding in Dadaab, there is a need to strengthen information on humanitarian needs and access to assistance and services in the camps. Since May 2017, REACH has worked with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) on developing tools and methodologies for data collection in Dadaab refugee camps.

This factsheet provides an overview of a household-level assessment in Dagahaley refugee camp; one of the three camps which comprise the Dadaab refugee complex with a population of close to 70,000 refugees. This assessment provides an analysis of refugee humanitarian needs, vulnerabilities and access to services across health, food security and livelihoods, protection, shelter and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sectors.

Primary data was collected through household surveys from 1-4 August 2018. A total of 95 households were interviewed. The assessment was sampled to fulfill a confidence level of 95% and a margin of error of 10% at the camp stratum level. This level is guaranteed for all questions that apply to the entire surveyed population of the camp. Findings relating to a subset of the surveyed population may have a higher margin of error.
