Informal Tented Settlements Vulnerability Assessment
This report is the result of 4 months of field data collection from April to August 2013 carried out in the Informal Tented Settlements (ITS) of the two districts of Zgharta and Minieh-Dennieh by SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s (SI) outreach workers. During the assessment, the outreach team visited 46 ITS and interviewed around 590 households out of the 1.098 registered in May in the settlements. The objective of the assessment was to have more insight into the refugees’ vulnerabilities in informal tented settlements and more particularly, with regards to WASH and shelter needs which were identified as the most critical ones. This report is also the opportunity to reveal the potential differences in terms of profile and vulnerabilities between refugees staying in ITS and refugees staying in other types of shelter as well as to use information collected as a baseline for monitoring the dynamics in the ITS (demographic evolution, profile of refugees, etc…).
