ACTED - December 2012
It is generally agreed by the host community, refugee and key informants that deforestation is occurring in and around Yida camp. Main deforested areas include the settlement and immediate surrounding areas, particularly around the main market, schools and water point.
The purpose of the following REACH brief is to highlight the social and political dynamics present in Yida refugee camp. Understanding the social organization is essential for providing targeted, humanitarian aid in an effective and socially respectable manner. This brief provides the humanitarian community with a snapshot of the social dynamics of Yida refugee camp.
This report, resulting from a series of interviews with refugees and the host community at the end of March by the ACTED/Impact team, attempts to give an initial vision of the current energy situation and trends to stakeholders in order to develop an improved understanding of the issues at play. In collaboration with other actors, ACTED aims to identify viable solutions for the conservation of these natural resources.
