Refugees and migrants’ access to food, shelter & NFIs, WASH and assistance in Libya: Mixed migration routes and dynamics in Libya

IMPACT, in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), conducted an assessment on refugees and migrants’ access to food, shelter and NFIs, WASH and assistance to inform humanitarian response planning in these sectors in support of the InterSector Coordination Group’s Humanitarian Needs Overview 2019. Data collection took place between 14 and 23 September 2018 in the east, west, and south of Libya, more specifically, in Tobruk, Sebha, Misrata, Ejdabia and Zwara. Data was collected through 151 semi-structured individual interviews with refugees and migrants, sampled on the basis of their region of origin and time of arrival in Libya. In parallel, REACH conducted in 2018 a multi-sector needs assessment (MSNA) to shed light on Libyans’ needs and vulnerabilities in the country. The indicators used for the MSNA and this present assessment were drafted to allow for comparison when appropriate. Results are based on qualitative data, all findings should be treated as indicative only.
