Nov 12 2022
- Mobility Tracking
- Baseline Assessment
To better understand drought induced mobility and identify the most urgent sectoral needs experienced by the community, the IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Mobility Tracking and Multi-sectoral Location Assessment (MSLA) has been rolled out in Turkana County, with the support of Lotus Kenya Action for Development Organization (LOKADO), an IOM implementing partner, in coordination with NDMA, County Commissioner’s Office (CCO) and County Government of Turkana, from 17 October to 12 November 2022 in Turkana County.
The mobility tracking of population groups, as well as the multi-sectoral location assessment aimed at collecting baseline information for further analysis of the mobility trends and most urgent sectoral needs of both the population groups and host communities. As initial steps prior to conducting a more comprehensive data collection exercise for the most urgent sectoral needs of the population groups and host communities, IOM has gathered basic information on livelihoods, Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Health, Emergency Shelters, Non-Food Items (NFIs) and Education sectors. The scope of the data collection on MSLA is limited to the most crucial information as it is basis for future response planning and programming.
The assessment was conducted across the entire Turkana County by enumerators in 30 Wards, 174 sublocations and 1,867 settlements.
