SITUATION OVERVIEW

Continued insecurity and localized conflict between communities in Ethiopia’s Gedeo Zone (Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region – SNNPR) and West Guji Zone (Oromia Region) have led to the rapid displacement of nearly 960,000 people between April and July 2018. Since mid-August, returns have begun toward areas of origin, though the situation for returnees remains precarious.
Many are unable to return to their original properties, and now gather in new collective sites in the kebele (town council) of origin.
