04 Dec 2017 Somalia English Download

As of October 2017 DTM estimates 168,000 IDPs in Gedo district, living in 310 IDP sites, the majority of IDPs considered as integrated within the host community. Baardheere, Doolow and Belet Xaawo have received the highest numbers, with increased movement into riverine villages due to availability of water, pasture and fodder. Districts in the region remain a new home to many persons affected by prolonged drought and road restrictions by extremist groups around Garbahaarey and Baardheere districts, which are key areas for pastoral communities who have since migrated to more urban locations in search of food, water and other necessity of livelihoods.
