Summary

After the outbreak of the civil war in 1991, parts of Afgooye town became a place of refuge for many of SouthernSomalia’s internally displaced people. The region has become home for many displaced persons from Lower Shabelle, with some also arriving from Bay and Hiraan. DTM estimated over 30,000 IDPs in Afgoye, with over half of all sites less than 6 months old. Since May 2017, DTM Somalia has rolled out its Emergency Tracking Tools (ETT) to have a better grasp of where IDP communities live, their numbers and priority needs. The geo-referenced dataset will contribute to an inter-agency Master-list of IDP sites.
