Samburu County is the tenth largest county in Kenya covering 21,000 square kilometers (km)2, located in the upper Northern region of Kenya and is among the 29 counties identified as ASAL area. The county has three sub-counties with headquarters located at Maralal Town.
To assess the 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) baseline assessment has been rolled out in Samburu County.
Through this first round of assessment in Samburu, IOM has gathered basic information on the population mobility dynamics and their sectoral needs namely, livelihoods, Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), health, emergency shelters, Non-Food Items (NFIs) and education. The data collection was conducted across the entire three sub-counties of Samburu County by enumerators in 16 Wards, 110 sub-locations, and 686 settlements.
