Mogadishu ‐ Fact Sheet, February 2012

Operational Context

For more than 21 years, Mogadishu has experienced continued fighting among various parties. Most of the capital is currently under TFG control; however, humanitarian operations are still limited due to security concerns. Access to vulnerable populations remains the key challenge. Aid agencies are making efforts to deliver life‐saving assistance to drought‐ and conflict‐affected IDPs as well as vulnerable parts of the resident population. Despite these efforts, there are still gaps in basic service provision, and the need to continue assistance in order to sustain the humanitarian gains made.
