In 2019, Jubaland State Authorities earmarked the Luglow site for the relocation of Displacement Affected Communities (DACs) that are currently dwelling in IDP sites at highest risk of evictions and flooding in Kismayo.

This report presents findings from a perception survey seeking to understand the intentions and preferences of DACs living in 29 high-risk camps on their possible relocation to Luglow. Understanding the needs, concerns and expectations of DACs in Kismayo through the perception survey is a key part of the government-led durable solutions strategy in Somalia, and vital to ensuring that DACs can take an active role in shaping their futures.

This study used a mixed methods research approach. Quantitative data was collected from 382 DAC households containing male and female IDPs and returnees. Additionally, 21 Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) were conducted with community leaders, representatives from host communities in Luglow, male, female and youth IDP and returnee communities in Kismayo, minority groups, landowners, and People with Disabilities (PwDs). Nineteen Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) were conducted with local and state government officials, representatives from
UN agencies, International non-governmental organisations (INGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), and DAC community leaders.
