Tana river county floods, Tana North district, Kenya Initial Rapid Assessment (KIRA) report


Provide stakeholders with information on the humanitarian situation following flooding in part of Tana River County through a multi-agency, multi-sectoral rapid assessment using the Kenya
Initial Rapid Assessment (KIRA) tool


Primary data collection and initial analysis was carried out in the field from 17th – 21st April, 2013. The request for conducting a KIRA came from District Commissioner and District Steering Group meetings in Hola (Tana River District) and Bura (Tana North District). KRCS Nairobi, having field presence in the district, supported the mission need.

Resultados principales: 

• Food, Shelter & NFI, WASH and Health support
• Food situation is deemed critical. Response so far by GoK and a few aid agencies in the area does not cover all needs. Limited number of tarpaulins provided by KRCS and MSF-Spain. WASH facilities are damaged /collapsed. Communities are using untreated water from nearby pans and canals. No access to health facilities, including reproductive health and no outreach health activities
• Flooded areas without access, is a major concern
• Lack of updated secondary data continues to be an issue
• Response activities need to be coordinated/ harmonized
