UNHCR Somalia - Operational Update September 2022
Dashboards & Factsheets
In September, the operational environment for Somalia remained challenging. The security situation deteriorated with the escalation of armed conflict between the non-state armed group Al-Shabab (AS) and the coalition of Somali security forces and local militias. The current drought has displaced more than a million people and south and central parts of Somalia are at the brink of famine. UNHCR through its leadership in Protection, Shelter, and CCCM clusters and together with partners and authorities, continued delivering lifesaving protection assistance to the vulnerable internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities affected by the drought. The operation also prioritized durable solutions for refugees and protracted IDPs.
