Updates on achievements
Over 819,000 Somalis are living outside their county as asylum-seekers and refugees. The majority (767,500) live in neighbouring countries of Ethiopia (256,000), Kenya (255,500) and Yemen (256,000). UNHCR strives to find durable solutions for Somali refugees to enable them to rebuild their lives either in the country of asylum, resettle to a third country or by supporting voluntary return. So far, UNHCR has assisted 83,669 refugees to return to Somalia in safety and dignity from nine different countries of asylum.
Updates on achievements
Since 8 December 2014, beginning with a pilot return activity that later expanded, UNHCR has assisted Somali refugees returning to Somalia with return and reintegration assistance. Somali refugee returnees who opt for voluntary repatriation under the UNHCR programme receive an enhanced return package to support their reintegration and to ensure the sustainability of returns. In the chapters below are achievements made during the month of February.

- Small-scale attacks by non-state armed actors, political tensions and clan conflicts were the main elements that marked the operational context in January.
- In some areas, the continuation of small-scale incidents and political standoffs impacted persons of concerns by limiting access to humanitarian assistance.
- In spite of slight overall improvement of food security, it is expected that ongoing conflict and drought will continue to impact people’s well-being.
Operating environment was marked with small-scale attacks, political tensions between the State of Puntland and ‘Somaliland’ and forced evictions.
Drought, insecurity and conflicts, remain key drivers of displacement and lack of comprehensive land tenure framework remains one of the key drivers for forced evictions.
According to monitoring agencies drought will continue in 2018 and can lead to further increased vulnerability of persons of concern.
A whole-of-society approach – a new improved way of UNHCR response
Somalia continues to face political instability, humanitarian crisis and clan conflicts.
Due to ongoing conflicts, drought and food insecurity more than one million people have been newly displaced in 2017.
Monitoring agencies expecting that humanitarian situation will continue to deteriorate.

Jedi and Abdulkadir are two Somali refugees from Mogadishu who had been working in Libya for a few years before having to flee after violence erupted earlier this year. They both share the burden of exile and high hopes for a future that can erase their tragic past.
Despite a staggering age gap, Jedi Momal Iman and Abdulkadir Muktar Molim became good friends soon after they arrived in a refugee camp on a sandy plain in southern Tunisia earlier this year. Jedi, 40, and Abdulkadir, 20, had been living in Shousha camp since last February.
Desert Locust (SGR) infestations declined during June in the primary breeding and outbreak areas in the Sahel, North Africa and Red Sea coasts due to control operations and unfavorable ecological conditions.
