Refugee Household Vulnerability Study: Kakuma Refugee Camps

Refugee Household Vulnerability Study: Kakuma Refugee Camps

In September 2015, the World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) commissioned Kimetrica to undertake an assessment of the livelihood activities and vulnerability profiles of the refugees in Kakuma with a view to establishing the feasibility of targeting food and Non-Food Item (NFI) assistance. In November and December 2015, 2,000 households (HHs) (13,378 people) covering all the 126 blocks within Kakuma were surveyed. This represents the most comprehensive socio-economic evaluation and profiling of this refugee population to date.
