This assessment was conducted by REACH Initiative between 24 August and 1 September, as part of the Shelter Cluster and CCCM Rapid Assessment. Shelter improvement was identified by a majority of households as the primary, immediate concern.The prevalent use of collective shelters and unfinished buildings by internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Duhok Governorate suggests that many households are living in sub-adequate shelter conditions and often with irregular access to basic services. Shelter and CCCM responses should prioritise vulnerable households, particularly those living in schools which has disrupted the academic year, through relocation or rehabilitation of housing.
