A verification exercise was conducted in Kakuma Refugee Camp in 2016 in partnership with Refugee Affairs Secretariat (RAS) and other partners and in 2018 in Kalobeyei settlement. With the implementation of KISEDP and the need to find localized solutions for refugees, the Operation decided to conduct a verification in Kakuma camp.
