UNHCR Somalia: Operational Update (1-29 February 2020)


The operational context in the month of February has been marked predominantly by armed and interclan conflicts and drought conditions.

Around 37,000 persons have been newly displaced, bringing the total to 72,000 internally displaced in 2020, out of which 53,000 persons (74 per cent) were displaced as a result of armed conflicts.

There is a high likelihood of river floods due to a forecast of aboveaverage rainfall during the Gu season (April-June), according to a monitoring agency, which can result in new displacements.
