IMPACT, in collaboration with UNHCR, conducted a fourth-round Multi Sector Needs Assessment (MSNA III) of Syrian refugees to provide a household-level analysis of sector-specific needs and vulnerabilities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KR-I). Building on the findings of previous MSNA, this study assessed any continued vulnerabilities. This assessment and its findings aimed to inform the development of the Regional Refugee & Resilience Plan (3RP), as well as relevant programming within the different sectors.
Data was collected through a phone bank, where enumerators called randomly selected UNHCR-registered refugees living in the host communities of the 3 governorates of the KR-I: Duhok, Erbil, and Sulaymaniyah. The random sample was drawn using a registration list provided by UNHCR, with samples sizes determined so that a certain level of representativeness could be obtained.
