NAIROBI [ACTED News] - ACTED recognizes the lack of centralized and integrated datasets on internally displaced persons’ (IDP) settlements in South Central Somalia and, through the REACH programme, aims to develop a more uniform process of data collection, integration and dissemination to enhance the accountability, targeting, and effectiveness of humanitarian programming in Mogadishu. In partnership with IMPACT Initiatives, ACTED plans to map between 9 to 11 camps in Mogadishu using a combination of secondary and primary data collection, involving secondary data review, data collection from partner agencies, satellite mapping, remote sensing and enumerator’s observation of camps and household conditions, with support from the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Department. The assessment will result the production of maps, reports and factsheets for use by approximately 80 organizations including cluster members, UN agencies, NGOs and donors.
