Patterns of internal displacement in Somalia are diverse: short and long-term, single or multiple events, protracted or newly emerging, in both rural and urban areas. This diversity needs to be reflected for appropriate solutions to be developed and pursued.
In Round 2 DTM Somalia assessed 119 sites. The total number of individual IDPs across these sites and during this period was 430,062. Of these 119,106 had been displaced within the same region, 93,721 (62.6%) were below the age of 17 and 47,388 (31.6%) were between 18-59 years old.
With protracted conflicts, reoccurring floods and drought as well as ongoing evictions in urban areas, the estimated internally displaced population (IDP) in Somalia stood at over 1.1 million in 2016. Within June 2016 DTM recorded 430, 062 IDPs.
