Tripoli Rapid Market Assessment (21 May 2019)
Since the onset of hostilities in South Tripoli a large number of families have been displaced from their homes in search of safety and protection. As of 19 May, at least 15,645 families (approximately 78,225 individuals) have been identified as IDPs by the ongoing DTM Emergency Tracking.The armed conflict has also affected markets, negatively impacting food security situation of the displaced and affected populations, and has also disrupted the provision of services in several affected areas.
DTM has conducted several rounds of rapid assessments on the impact of conflict on availability of food, access to markets & cash as well as availability of services in the municipalities of Abusliem, Ain Zara (also covering Khallat al Furjan and Salah Eddin separately), Al Aziziya, Hai Alandalus, Janzour, Qasr Bin Ghashir, Suq Al Khamis, Swani Bin Adam, Tajoura, and Tripoli Center. These assessments are conducted on a bi-weekly cycle and rely on direct data collection via enumerators and key informant interviews.
