Long-term Solutions Needed for Drought IDPs in Ethiopia

Refugees International published in September 2019 a report titled "'Like a Drop of Water on a Fire': Inadequate Investment in Durable Solutions for Drought IDPs in Ethiopia," by Ann Hollingsworth.

More than 500,000 IDPs in Ethiopia have been displaced by drought and other climate-related causes, and almost 350,000 of them reside in Somali Region. The Ethiopian national government and the Somali regional government, as well as the international humanitarian and development communities, should rapidly shift their strategic planning and financial resources to supporting durable solutions, including local integration.
