Guidance on Profiling Internally Displaced Persons

This Guidance is designed to help Humanitarian Partnership Country Teams gather better data on IDPs by proposing different methodologies and providing advice on choosing the optimum method for a given country context. The Guidance also examines a series of related issues: how to obtain a better picture of who and where IDPs are, the difficulties of distinguishing them from surrounding communities and how to compile workable estimates for protection, programming and advocacy purposes.
