- Conflict-Incused Displacement
More than three decades of civil war, activities of extremist groups, piracy, and the absence of central government have destroyed much of the economy and forced millions of people to flee to neighboring countries or settle as internally displaced persons (IDPs) in bigger cities.
Over 900,000 Somali refugees are registered in the Horn of Africa and Yemen, while more
than 2.1 million people are displaced within the country. The majority of those IDPs are
women and children.
- Climate-Induced Displacement
In Somalia, a tragedy is unfolding, in which 6.2 million Somalis – more than half the
population – are in need of urgent food and water assistance. The horn of Africa has had several years of drought caused by the El Nino phenomenon, its location on the Equator, and climate change. Most of the population is dependent on a semi-nomadic pastoral lifestyle, so the inadequate rainfall and lack of water have wiped out crops and killed livestock.
According to the UN report, Famines in 1992 and 2011 each claimed more than 200,000 lives. A drought in 2016-17 displaced more than 1m people and caused losses and damage of over $3bn. This year, in addition to the pandemic, crops have been swept away by floods and ravaged by desert locusts (with a new swarm on the way). Floods are another major cause of climate-induced displacement. While certain areas experienced reduced rainfall, others experienced heavy rainfall and floods during the rainy season in many low-lying areas. More than three million IDPs were displaced in October 2019 due to several flood incidences in Ethiopia and Somalia. African Relief Fund distributes food parcels for internally displaced people due to the extreme climate changes.
