Summary

As of 31 December 2019, 292,892 (7%) of the total 4,350,900 IDPs, displaced between January 2012 and December 2019, are living in informal settlements, according to results from round 9 of DTM’s Baseline Mobility Assessments conducted in December 2019. IDPS in informal settlements not only lack access to basic services, such as drinking water, food, WASH and health services, but are also exposed to higher levels of insecurity and often depend on unskilled labor, loans and humanitarian assistance to survive. Lack of adequate WASH facilities and poor hygiene in these communities are linked with transmission of diseases and pose public health challenges and risks of sexual exploitation.
