In December 2013 Botswana's Dukwi refugee camp was host to an estimated 3,104 individuals (1,527 households) from 14 countries, mostly Somalia and Namibia. There was an assortment of languages and cultures co-existing in the camp. In December 2013, UNHCR conducted a nutrition survey in the camp with the overall aim to assess the prevalence of malnutrition
and to monitor selected indicators of programme performance. The survey was based on the UNHCR Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) guidelines for refugee populations (v1.3) (see www.sens.unhcr.org) and the Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) methodology (v1).
This data is the anonymous version of the data collected for the 2013 survey. See the details on the specific objectives of the survey and survey methods in the report.
