Key Issues

  • Of the 147,040 refugee arrivals in Gambella region, IOM relocated 129,232 refugees to camps as of 14 June, with only 1,701 refugees awaiting relocation, mainly in Akobo and Pagak entry points.

  • All existing camps are at or nearing full capacity. UNHCR is discussing with the Government the need for additional camp sites to accommodate the continuing influx.

  • The rate of new arrivals declined during the second week of June, with below 600 new daily arrivals between 6 and 12 June, compared to over 1,000 new daily arrivals at the beginning of the month.

  • To reduce the risk of acute watery diarrhoea (AWD) in the camps, ARRA, UNHCR and partners initiated an AWD prevention strategy.

  • 38 per cent of the US$102 million required for the South Sudanese refugee operation in Ethiopia was funded as of 9 June.

  • It is still unclear how much of the US$600 million donors pledged at the Oslo Conference on 20 May will be allocated for the refugee response in Ethiopia.
