Understanding the Socio Economic Conditions of Refugees in Camps and Urban Areas in Kenya - Summary

The World Bank and UNHCR undertook a comparative examination of the socio-economic conditions of camp-based and urban refugees to understand key differences between both populations. The comparative analysis presents differences with regard to housing, energy, sanitation, access to finance, and social cohesion. As it is likely that education, livelihoods, and food insecurity fluctuated due to COVID-19, differences in these are presented only for camp-based refugees in Kalobeyei and Kakuma (discussed in the full report).
