Description: Dec 1, 2016: Kenya is host to more than 334,000 refugees from Somalia who have fled the violence of the al-Shabaab terrorist group. More than 260,000 of those refugees live in the Dadaab refugee camp, making it the largest refugee camp in the world. In March of this year, the Kenyan government announced its intention to close Dadaab, as well as other camps housing Somali refugees in Kenya, citing the “economic, security, and environmental burden". With no alternative options, some refugees have been coerced into repatriating to Somalia, where insecurity and an ongoing humanitarian crisis continue. Yarnell and RI President Michel Gabaudan travelled to both Kenya and Somalia to meet with Somalis still in Kenya and those who had returned home to better understand the dangers Somalis will face when Dadaab is closed.

Description: Since 2000, there has been steady economic growth and modest rises in incomes in Kenya. However, high rates of poverty persist, particularly among vulnerable groups such as children (especially orphans and vulnerable children), older people, people with severe disabilities and food insecure households. With the support of IDA – the World Bank’s fund for the poorest – the Government of Kenya is increasing harmonization and consolidating of four cash transfer programs that support Kenya's most vulnerable households. This approach is contributing to improving coordination between the different programs, reducing duplication across programs, improving operational efficiency, increasing coverage and improving timely payment of benefits.

Description: (Nairobi, September 15, 2016) – Kenya’s repatriation program for Somali refugees, fueled by fear and misinformation, does not meet international standards for voluntary refugee return, Human Rights Watch said today. Many refugees living in Kenya’s sprawling Dadaab camp, home to at least 263,000 Somalis, say they have agreed to return home because they fear Kenya will force them out if they stay.
In May 2016, the Kenyan government announced plans to speed up the repatriation of Somali refugees and close the Dadaab camp in northeastern Kenya by November. Kenyan authorities, with officials from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), then stepped up a 2013 “voluntary” repatriation program.
