Based on automated shelter detection analysis using satellite imagery recorded 3 March 2011, a total of 1,107 tent shelters were identified within the transitional camp site measuring 19.4ha in size. Of this total, 1,003 tents were likely erected for displaced people, with a further 104 tents likely allocated for camp staff and local authorities. Based on a measurement of the average tent size, it is estimated that the current camp population capacity is approximately 5,000 people. There is currently ground prepared for an estimated 600 additional tents which could thus accommodate over 3,000 more displaced persons. The camp site could be readily expanded beyond its current configuration if needed.
