IOM Information Management & Policy Development for Durable Solutions for IDPs in Ethiopia
There are over 777’000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ethiopia today. More than half of them are in the Somali Region and are extremely marginalized. Their specific needs are badly known and the vast majority of the humanitarian and development interventions fail to include them in programming. This SDC contribution to the IOM will improve the availability of evidence-based data on IDPs to inform longer term programming, advocacy and policy development needed to devise durable solutions for protracted IDPs in Ethiopia.

There are over 777’000 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 Niño-induced drought along with the recent floods has increased the vulnerability of the population and led to a significant increase of IDPs.
Improve the wellbeing of IDPs through enhanced information management, capacity building, policy development and advocacy towards durable solutions.
The Ethiopian IDPs: over 777’000 as of April 2016; 821’000 by the end of 2016 (projection).
