SFD Promotion Initiative Domiz 2 Syrian Refugee Camp Kurdistan Region of Iraq

Domiz 2 Syrian refugee camp is located on the outskirts of the Domiz Township, near the city of the Duhok, in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The camp was intended to be temporary in nature to provide shelter to those fleeing the war in Syria. Having been established in 2013 and currently being expanded by 160 shelters in July 2019, UNHCR Duhok staff believe that it is now reasonable to expect that the camp will be in place for the medium to long term.

At the time of writing, the registered population of the camp is 9,895. This remains relatively static, other than the estimated 3% annual population growth rate that has been applied. No significant population movements are known, such as for holidays.

Sanitation is provided to each shelter, with black water (toilet waste only) going to either septic tanks or holding tanks.
