Mogadishu ‐ Fact Sheet May 2012

from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs

Operational Context

The situation in Mogadishu has changed rapidly in the past few months. While security, and therefore access has relatively improved, profound humanitarian challenges remain as population continues to influx to the city from Afgooye corridor and other regions due to conflict.

Existing IDP settlements have expanded considerably resulting to overcrowding and straining of the already overburdened service delivery. The standoff between TFG/AMISOM and Al Shabaab for the control of Afgooye corridor is causing a state of uncertainty among the population, thus affecting agricultural activity in the corridor and the return process.
