This assessment of the Melkadid camp near the Ethiopian border town of Dolo was done at the request of UNHCR in support of emergency humanitarian planning in the area following the recent influx of Somali refugees. Satellite imagery acquired on 31 July 2011 over the camp was used for a tent assessment and infrastructure. This is a preliminary assessment and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT at the contact information below. Additional reports will be produced as new imagery becomes available. Vector data produced in this assessment and additional UNOSAT Horn of Africa products are available at http://www.unitar.org/unosat/horn-africa-data
