Background

There are over 777000 IDPs in Ethiopia today. While circa 70% of IDPs are forced into exile by conflicts, more than 60% of them live in the Somali National Regional State (SNRS) alone. The El Nio-induced drought along with the recent floods has increased the vulnerability of the population and led to a significant increase of IDPs.

Ethiopian IDPs are forced to move by both man-made and natural disasters. The lack of proper mechanisms to address the root causes of forced displacement often translates into protracted displacement for over a decade. Devising durable solutions is all the more challenging considering the lack of information available (coping mechanisms, access to services and displacement patterns, including secondary movements) as well as the fact that the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) acknowledged the issues of IDPs only recently. The absence of effective policy frameworks linking immediate humanitarian needs with longer-term livelihood recovery programmes left the root causes of internal displacement unaddressed, which has led to an increasing numbers of IDPs over time.

Objectives

Improve the wellbeing of IDPs through enhanced information management, capacity building, policy development and advocacy towards durable solutions.
