OBJECTIVE

The Borno PSWG Rapid Protection Assessment Report compiles information from both data collection in IDP sites around Maiduguri (Part I) as well as in recently liberated satellite camps of Damboa and Dikwa (Part II).

The assessment of displacement sites around Maiduguri Metropolis (MMC, Jere, Konduga) was conducted in order to obtain a full picture of protection issues and severity in all sites around Maiduguri in order to prioritize the most pressing issues and severe sites, for targeted rapid interventions.

Due to the opening up of limited humanitarian accessibility in areas formerly under Boko Haram control, the need for a rapid protection assessment in Dikwa and Damboa was urgently raised. The assessment objective was to identify pressing protection concerns in the satellite IDP camps to inform immediate interventions to the most vulnerable, a rapid Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) response, as well as to promote access, dignity and accountability to displaced currently experiencing the most severe of circumstances.
