Assessing the impact of displacement on IDPs and host communities in Indonesia
This preliminary analysis starts to piece together the impact and potential policies to support IDPs beyond humanitarian support. It analyzes data collected by Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) in Indonesia in December 2021 from 353 individuals – 199 internally displaced individuals affected by floods and 154 people from within the host communities. Women make up 60% of respondents in IDP households and 50% in hosts households. The sample size while relatively small, provides a starting point to understand progress in reaching different development outcomes based only on the households sampled. While effort was made for the sample to be representative, the representativeness does not capture the entire population of IDPs or hosts in the country.
