The overall objective of the JVA was to assess the vulnerability of refugees across multiple sectors with:
- an immediate focus and prioritization of the food security assessment – this covered both camp and non-camp refugees and has led to programmatic recommendations on processes and criteria for targeting the most vulnerable and food insecure;
- a medium-term focus on multi-sectoral vulnerability in terms of food security, shelter, health, education and specific needs – this also resulted in programmatic recommendations on processes and criteria for targeting the most vulnerable in each sector, including a cross-sectoral comparison.
In particular, the following objectives were implemented:
- Provide an updated and comprehensive picture of multi-sectoral vulnerabilities with a priority on food insecurity among Syrian refugees in the KRI.
- Inform decision-making for inter-agency interventions, informing appropriate assistance responses and targeting criteria for support pertaining to the mandates of WFP and UNHCR.
- Identify resilience programming options for refugee groups based on their skills, the labour market situation and access to markets.
