Zooming in on internally displaced people’s needs to inform better responses

The need for comprehensive data and analysis on IDPs' living conditions is becoming ever more urgent amid a growing global focus on finding durable solutions for the millions of internally displaced people worldwide. Uncovering the specific vulnerabilities of displaced communities compared to non-displaced populations is pivotal for helping inform a more targeted response.
