Ethiopia — National Displacement Dashboard 16 (March - April 2019)
The majority of the recorded population were displaced before 2018 with 890 sites reportedly opening in 2016 or 2017 (DTM Rounds 1-8). Conflict was reported as the primary driver of displacement with 1,623,716 conflict-affected IDPs tracked through the Site Assessment. Climate-induced displacement was the second largest cause of displacement with a total of 499,336 IDPs. Through collaboration with NDRMC, ‘‘climate-induced’’ displacement is defined as displacement caused by environmental factors such as drought, seasonal floods, flash floods and landslides. This is followed by 71,894 IDPs displaced by other factors such as economic/development projects, severe wind, fire, social tensions and protracted displacement due to volcanic disruptions.
