In November, 26,000 new displacement were monitored by the UNHCR-led Protection and Returns Monitoring Network (PRMN), a decrease compared to last month. Half of the displacements occurred in Bakool region due to lack of livelihood as pastoralists search for greener pastures. In 2018 so far, PRMN has monitored 858,000 internal displacements due to conflicts, floods and drought.

It is estimated there are 2.6 million internally displaced people in Somalia.

Somali refugees continue to return from countries of asylum. Over 123,000 people have voluntarily returned from twelve countries of asylum since 2014. The countries of asylum include Kenya, Yemen, Djibouti, Libya, Tunisia and Eritrea.
