The United Nations refugee agency has reported that a staggering 88,000 people have been forced to flee their homes in Somalia over the past three months.

In Somalia, around 88,000 people were displaced in the first quarter of 2024 due to conflict, flooding, and insecurity. The UNHCR highlighted clan conflicts, political tensions, and ongoing military operations against al-Shabab as major threats to the fragile security situation in the country. Indiscriminate attacks by al-Shabab have caused significant harm to civilians, leading to further displacements and casualties. The overall humanitarian crisis in Somalia is exacerbated by decades of conflict, political unrest, clan dynamics, and climate change. Despite the subsiding floods in late 2023, the country continues to face the repercussions of climate-related disasters. The UNHCR remains committed to finding sustainable solutions for refugees, asylum-seekers, returnees, and internally displaced persons in collaboration with government and humanitarian partners in Somalia.
