Hunger, displacement and migration: A joint innovative approach to assessing needs of migrants in Libya - 2019

Author: IOM, WFP VAM
To better understand and assess the overall situation of migrants and affected host communities in Libya, WFP and the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) programme of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) collaborated to collect information through a mixed-methods’ approach.

The objective of the study was to jointly collect credible information and conduct joint analysis to:

1. Inform development and humanitarian actors on the status of migrants and affected Libyan citizens, including their interactions;

2. Identify the most vulnerable groups, their food security situation, the challenges they face and other basic needs to determine how best to assist these populations in their current location; and

3. Provide an understanding of the underlying drivers of migration and intentions, and what role food security plays in migration decision-making
