The Vulnerability Assessment Tool (VAT) started in the mid of 2018 until the outbreak of COVID-19, March 2020. Both camp and urban refugee population were targeted using a different mechanism for each. The program included multiple objectives and among them, was an immediate focus and prioritization of the food security assessment: this led to programmatic recommendations on processes and criteria for targeting the most vulnerable and food insecure. Another crucial aim behind this exercise was a medium-term focus on multi-sectoral vulnerability in terms of food security, shelter, health, education, and specific needs: this also resulted in programmatic recommendations on processes and criteria for targeting the most vulnerable in each sector, including a cross-sectoral comparison.
