There are 5.2 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Somalia. The country also
has a high number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees who have left the
country, with more than 3.6 million who have been displaced by conflict, insecurity, forced
evictions, droughts, and floods. Clan disputes, protests, the weakness of the national forces, the
gradual withdrawal of the African Union Mission in Somalia, Islamic State and continuing
Al-Shabaab attacks cause insecurity and instability across Somalia.
The insecurity coupled with reoccurring climatic shocks often lead to displacement. With 2.6
million IDPs across 3,000+ settlements/sites, IOM’s Camp Coordination and Camp
Management (CCCM) contribution remains vital. Currently, managing over 600 sites, IOM’s
CCCM team ensures the provision of basic services in sites and the centralised access to
