This report provides a detailed analysis of spatially-distinct concentrations of IDP shelters within the urban extent of Mogadishu, and assesses the date periods the camp sites were likely formed as well as the larger settlement patterns, trends and security dynamics underlining IDP movements. Identified IDP sites were further assessed for construction/shelter type, specifically looking for the presence of emergency tent shelters, a common barometer of active support from international aid organizations and NGOs. Satellite imagery acquired on 4, 12 September, and 7, 15, 18 October 2011 was used for this updated report. There are known IDP settlements located within permanent buildings that have not been identified, and are not reflected in the estimates presented in this report. This report is part of an on-going satellite monitoring program of UNITAR / UNOSAT of the Horn of Africa crisis in support of international humanitarian assistance and created to respond to the needs of UN agencies and their partners. This is assessment has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT at the contact information below.
