Somalia — Displacement Situation Report Modagishu, Banadir Region (October 2017)

23 Oct 2017 Somalia English Download

Mogadishu hosts the largest estimated protracted internally displaced population in Somalia, mainly living in informal IDP sites across the city. DTM’s October 2017 data collection focusing on the greater Mogadishu area identified a total of 545,000 individuals in over 840 IDP sites. Findings show that during the last three years, the majority of IDPs have shifted from more central districts in Mogadishu to districts in the periphery of the city, which stands in contrast to previous studies carried out in Mogadishu. Moreover, people continue to move into the city from other parts of the country, while others are forced to move from within the city to its outskirts.
