Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen – Satellite Imagery Analysis Help Monitor Internally Displaced People (IDP) Camps

As the international community steps up efforts to bring relief to people displaced by conflict in Yemen, UNOSAT has released a new IDP analysis report on the IDP camps in Sa’adah, Yemen. This analysis report is based on the most recent very high resolution satellite imagery available, acquired in October 2009. UNITAR/UNOSAT will provide updated analysis as new satellite imagery is acquired. The IDP shelter count was obtained from automated building extraction methods.

This analytical report is part of the UNOSAT Humanitarian Rapid Mapping Service provided to the entire humanitarian community and it is free of charge. It can be downloaded here.
