Summary

This week witnessed significantly reduced numbers of new arrivals and a spike in exits. 136 IDPs were recorded arriving in Baidoa this week, the fewest number of new arrivals ever recorded in one week. These decreases were attributed to the slow movements of IDPs to Baidoa due to the onset of rainy seasons in the region. 112 individuals were recorded exiting the town, the most exits recorded in one week since November 2017. The key drivers for displacements into Baidoa were prolonged drought and insecurity at the village of origin, while those leaving cited management of their farms since the Gu seasonal rains had begun in their villages of origin.
