Analysis Summary: Within Kismayo, there has been a dramatic influx of Somali IDPs since April 2011 with the formation of the largest camp site in the city (6.5ha) composed of 2,245 informal shelter structures, which could likely accommodate well in excess of 11,000 people. Two additional but much smaller camp sites were erected during this same period, encompassing 80 additional informal structures. Further, two existing IDP shelter sites increased in size, while the remaining 19 IDP sites, composed of more permanent building materials, remained unchanged. This report is based on a time-series analysis of Somali IDP shelter concentrations using satellite imagery recorded on 1 April and 14 September 2011. These are preliminary findings and have not yet been validated in the field.
