Displacement and conflict

Around 1.542 million people are internally displaced in South Sudan, and over 546,000 have crossed borders and become refugees. About 106,228 people have fled Burundi, and about 25,000 have left Yemen (where 1 million people are internally displaced)3 for Djibouti and Somalia. Areas of conflict in South Sudan and Yemen remain very difficult for humanitarian organizations to access, pushing more to cross borders in search of assistance.

Somalia’s humanitarian crisis remains fragile. A total of 3 million people need humanitarian assistance including 731,000 in emergency and crisis. This continues to be compounded by floods, forced evictions of internally displaced people, and the people fleeing conflict in Yemen. However, almost halfway through 2015, only 26 per cent of funding against the Humanitarian Response Plan for 2015 has been covered. This is affecting the capacity of humanitarian partners to respond to these increasing needs.
