Update 5: Reduction of Somali IDP Shelter Concentrations in Mogadishu, Somalia (2 May 2012 - 3 June 2013)

Published:Fri, 19 Jul 2013 12:47:23 GMT
A total of 379 spatially distinct IDP shelter concentrations were identified as of 3 June 2013 within Mogadishu, representing a decrease of 134 IDP sites since the last UNOSAT analysis which used an image from 2 May 2012. An estimate of the total number of IDP structures located in Mogadishu indicates a minimum figure of at least 61,000 mostly informal shelters. The number of IDP camps has significantly reduced in multiple areas of Mogadishu. This report is the fifth in a series of IDP analyses done by UNOSAT since 2011 and is based on a time-series analysis of shelter concentrations within the city of Mogadishu using multiple satellite images acquired between 30 March 2011 and 3 June 2013. This assessment has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT. channel->item[0]->Imagepath; foreach ($xml->channel->item as $item) { // echo $item->link . "
