DTM Somalia Round 2 Report – September 2016

The second round of data collection for the DTM pilot project in Somalia was carried between 13th June and 27th June 2016 in five regions (Awdal, Hiraan, Middle Shabelle, Lower Juba and Gedo) in seven districts (Afmadow, Borama, Kismayo, Doolow, Balcad, Belet Weyne and Jowhar). Out of 181 settlements identified in round 1, round 2 captured data from 119 settlements covering a total of 149,819. The reasons for fewer sites being assessed in round 2 were because the sites selected had higher number of IDP per site and would therefore be more representative in identifying sectoral needs. However, the data and analysis presented is a representative sample, being 66% of those assessed in round 1) of the total number. Collective sites were defined as any site comprising a minimum of five IDP households that were identified in round 1.
