Decongestion guidance note

Document Type: Dashboards & Factsheets
Document Language: English
Somalia has 2.6 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have limited access to quality essential healthcare, water and sanitation services and live in more than 2,000 sites in crowded living conditions in urban and semi-urban areas. COVID-19 pandemic poses an additional challenge in this already fragile context where it may further hinder access to basic services, leaving the population highly vulnerable. The present document has been jointly developed by Shelter Cluster, CCCM Cluster and UN-Habitat Somalia and outlines the overall guidance for the decongestion and upgrading IDP settlements to reduce the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.
