Since conflict in Yemen erupted in early 2015, thousands have been fleeing the country for safe haven.
The situation has worsened as Yemenis also suffer disease and famine. Djibouti has welcomed around 38,000 Yemeni refugees, many of whom have moved on to other countries, but those who have stayed, live in the Markazi refugee camp at Obock and in urban areas. As Djibouti struggles to build the capacity to effectively address the steady influx of refugees, it counts on international efforts to effectively respond to the needs of this vulnerable community.

INTRODUCTION

The Government of Djibouti ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990), its two optional protocols (2011) as well as the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (2009) - all without reservations. The country has thus committed to protect children’s rights and to work towards providing all children with the opportunities to fulfil their rights. Since then, Djibouti has made tremendous progress in advancing children’s and women’s rights.
