Syria: Weekly IDP Situation Monitoring Initiative 30 Jan – 5 Feb 2017


The IDP Situation Monitoring Initiative (ISMI ) is an initiative of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster, implemented by REACH with the support of Syria Relief Network (SRN) and cluster members.

Following a baseline assessment conducted between 23 October and 21 November 2016, weekly data collection cycles have been initiated to provide regular updates on IDP movements. Based on 1,183 communities assessed in the governorates of Aleppo, Ar-Raqqa, Deir-ez-Zor, Hama, Homs and Idleb during the baseline, this factsheet presents a summary of reported inward and outward movements of IDPs in the 7 days preceding data collection. From 30 January to 5 February 2017such displacements were reported in 113 out of all ISMI-covered communities.

Displacement was identified through an extensive key informant (KI) network, either through alert initiated by KIs or follow-up by enumerators. A range of 2-3 KIs were interviewed in each community, while collected information was further triangulated through other sources, including CCCM member data and humanitarian updates. This approach allows for regular updates on IDP movements at a community level across ISMI coverage areas. As movement updates are limited to areas covered by ISMI, there are displacements that are not reported on here.
