Kenya: Newly-displaced Kenyans by inter-communal violence in 2012 (as of Dec 2012)

Attachments

In the absence of reliable comprehensive data on IDP populations across Kenya, conservative estimates of new displacement in 2012 due to inter-communal violence are represented here. Registration of people displaced by the post-election violence (PEV) in 2007 and 2008 was not comprehensive, and the results of a planned verification exercise are yet to be released. UNHCR’s estimates suggest the number of PEV IDPs in the country as of January 2012 was approximately 300,000.
