In Africa, ongoing and new emergencies caused large-scale displacement in 2010 and 2011. In southern and central Somalia, in addition to drought and emerging famine, fighting led to mass movements within the country and across borders, straining services and facilities in already overcrowded camps in Ethiopia,
