Methodology and Background Context

The Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster and REACH Initiative (REACH) periodically monitor Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps in order to inform a more effective humanitarian response across Iraq. This is done on a quarterly basis, through the CCCM’s IDP Camp Pro ling which provides regular and updated information on developments, needs, and gaps in all accessible IDP camps. Round V of the Quarterly IDP Camp Pro ling was conducted in April 2016, during which 36 formally recognized IDP camps across Iraq were assessed. (The Quarterly IDP Camp Pro ling directory can be found here

Since August 2014, REACH has mapped available infrastructure in the camps, highlighting data on general infrastructure, WASH facilities and tent blocks. Spatial analysis of camps has also been performed on an ad-hoc basis in order to inform on specific areas of interest (e.g. distance from latrines in line with Sphere standards) within camps.

As of December 2015, REACH expanded the project to conducted additional thematic mapping. Thus far two specific themes have been covered with the latest theme - in April/May – the mapping of WASH facilities.

Methodology

For the purposed mapping of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) facilities in camps, facilities were divided into two groups: grouped WASH facilities within tent blocks, and of office facilities and communal standalone WASH facilities. A short observational survey was conducted for every group or standalone facility. As such, findings are presented individually – for standalone facilities – and block-level for remaining facilities.

Indicators were informed with guidance from the WASH and CCCM clusters. Data was collected using Open Data Kit (ODK) on hand-held phones with teams visiting the camps over a one to two day period.

This catalogue includes maps displaying the following indicators per camp:

  • Percentage or presence of blocked toilets
  • Percentage or presence of over owing toilets
  • Percentage or presence of non-functioning showers
  • Percentage or presence of non-functioning tap-stands

Direct comparisons across all camps are possible, as the same indicators are used and a uniform legend is applied throughout. Raw data was cleaned to eliminate demonstrably erroneous entries.

Limitations

Data was collected for each camp once; therefore due to active programming for WASH in camps, facility conditions may have changed. However, the mapping package gives a clear indication of areas of concerns within camps and allows camps to be compared side by side.

When reading this report and using findings presented herein, the reader should bear in mind that this assessment represents the response given by benefiiaries. While REACH always endeavors to create an open dialogue with respondents in order to collect objective responses, the subjectivity and possibility of bias in the response should be taken into account.

Iraq: Iraq: Kerbala - Najaf Highway Informal IDP Site Map Catalogue (June 2016)

Overview

This catalogue provides information about 521 informal sites located along the Kerbala-Najaf Highway. These sites account for 40% of the 1,336 informal displacement sites in the centre and south of Iraq and consist of hundreds of mawkabs, a type of temporary shelter that was formerly used only by pilgrims.

On behalf of the CCCM Cluster, REACH and IOM assessed and mapped each of the 1,336 sites along the Kerbala-Najaf highway, in order to provide detailed information about their physical location and key concerns in each site.

Through providing comprehensive information on the location and conditions in these sites, this exercise aims to contribute to an improved understanding of key concerns in each site to ensure timely and appropriate assistance to those most vulnerable.

Throughout this catalogue, key concerns are highlighted using a “red flag” alert system, by which each site is scored based on the number of red flag concerns – the higher the number, the greater the severity. In addition, a unique identifier, or SSID, has been assigned to each site, together with the total site population.

Context

Ongoing conflict since December 2013 has resulted in the displacement of an estimated 3.2 million people in Iraq. While many live in formal camps, the vast majority of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), 92%, are estimated to live outside of formal camp settings, where they often lack access to protection and assistance. Kerbala and Najaf are located 100km and 160km southwest, respectively, from Baghdad. Given their proximity to Anbar Governorate, both governorates have received a high number of IDPs.

The mawkabs used as temporary shelter along the Najaf-Kerbala highway were traditionally used by pilgrims, who would use them as resting points along the 80km walk between the eponymous cities. The pilgrimage occurs only once a year between October to December, leaving mawkabs closed throughout much of the year.

Following the escalation of violence in 2014 and subsequent internal displacement, mawkabs were opened year round to provide temporary accommodation for IDPs. This has resulted in a dense concentration of IDP sites along the highway, housing a fluid population of vulnerable individuals.
