Against the recent COVID-19 pandemic and its secondary socio-economic impact, the objective of theJoint Needs Assessment (JNA) was to provide an update on the level of vulnerability and livelihoodresilience among refugee households in Mantapala settlement. Livelihood challenges and opportunities had to be identified and socio-economic profiles developed for those most vulnerable and affected bythe pandemic. Lastly, the JNA was to inform programmatic decisions and suggest the most appropriate and feasible targeting approach for future interventions by WFP and UNHCR.
An extensive literature review and technical discussions took place to identify the knowledge gap during the assessment design phase. The data collection for the assessment took place in Mantapala settlement between the 19 - 28 September 2020. A total of 1,128 randomly selected households were interviewed based on a structured questionnaire. Additionally, five focus group discussions and two key informant interviews were conducted. Findings are statistically representative at the settlement level.
This dataset is an anonymous version of the household data collected through the structured questionnaire. It was processed by UNHCR and WFP. Data users should be aware that the data includesa number of households that are composed of only minors (under the age of 18). This is a known vulnerability in the settlement, and not an error in the dataset.
