Territories under the control of the Kurdistan Regional Government have absorbed multiple bouts of large scale, protracted external and internal displacement. The latest, and most severe round, was internal and although caused by the spillover of conflict from neighbouring Syria, displaced an estimated 1.6 million individuals. An estimated 1.2 million of these individuals now reside in the KRI, scattered across areas already hosting significant numbers of Syrian refugees.

Since then, no comprehensive attempt has been made to assess or even establish a baseline to document and gauge the effects of these crises on the hosting communities of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI).This report presents findings and analysis across the sectors of demographics, livelihoods, food security, education, health as well as social cohesion for hosting communities across 22 districts of the KRI.
