Description
During April 2017, Norwegian Refugee Council (the partner organisation implementing the PRMN) and local partners in the field mapped the main IDP settlements sites in and around Baidoa. Since November 2016, Baidoa has received over 122,000 persons internally displaced by drought contributing to the increase of the estimated Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) population in and around the city to more than 155,000 individuals (*25,800 households mutiplied by a factor of 6). The map above may not include all IDP sites so the true figure may be higher. The PRMN (Protection & Return Monitoring Network) is a UNHCR-led project which identifies and reports on displacements of populations in Somalia and protection incidents.
