The People of Somalia are facing the compounded impacts of a multi-layered and protracted humanitarian crisis: widespread conflict and inter-clan violence as well as climatic shocks (droughts, floods, cyclones) has led to chronic and high levels of vulnerability, especially of 2.6 million internally displaced people. The number of individuals suffering internal displacements continue to rise yearly. The vast majority of the displaced people of Somalia are facing protracted displacement crisis. Furthermore, new displacements are taking place daily, where a large proportion are secondary displacements due to evictions.

The IDPs are currently residing in urban and peri-urban informal crowded settlements, with insufficient access to basic services and poor shelter conditions that raise protection and health concerns. They remain in need of Shelter and NFIs support for protection from harsh climatic conditions, overall improvements to their living conditions and improvement to their chances to access livelihoods and durable solutions.

Local authorities have struggled to cope with the doubling of populations in urban areas and the multitude of problems associated with the influxes. In the past year, several district and state authorities have decided to allocate public land for displaced populations in order to improve service delivery and living conditions and to mitigate the negative effects associated with private IDP sites such as gatekeepers and evictions.
